Lots of ideas for the future of Hope

Most people agreed we need to improve Wallace Street

The public meeting held April 14 at the Hope Station House – jointly sponsored by the Hope Station House and the Ratepayers – attracted some diverse people and interesting comments.

Most agreed we need to improve Wallace Street and fixing potholes is a must.

It was also suggested that we have street musicians and there be Saturday farmer’s markets, such as those in Merritt and Lillooet, with a permit for the Station House location, on possible available native land or add on to the existing one on Sixth Avenue.

Other comments include:

• Copy Agassiz organic gardening

• Nature walks

• Boat rentals

• Back country skiing

• Othello Tunnels

• Bus to Ross Lake

Hope must be a destination, not a quick restaurant stop.

We need to beautify Hope and above all advertise out of Hope.

Branding may help but obviously we need more. Every group in Hope must get involved.
