Downtown museum one step closer

Museum society accepts city offer of land

The Terrace and District Museum Society has accepted an offer of land from the city for its long-awaited museum.

The society has been working on plans to develop a museum in the downtown core for several years.

The city committed to providing land with its offer of a 0.5 acre parcel on the eastern side of the former Co-op site that was formally accepted by the society’s board on November 21, 2017.

The eastern portion of the Co-op site is on Kalum Street near the George Little House/VIA Rail Station and has been identified for cultural use in the city’s zoning bylaw.

City of Terrace council is pleased to be able to support this worthwhile community project through this provision of land.

The downtown museum project aligns with the city’s corporate vision as outlined in the Official Community Plan, to create a thriving and vibrant downtown.
