Rivers Edge continues to improve and upgrade its facilities through the recent approval of an $80,000.00 Community Facilities Enhancement Program grant from the Alberta Culture and Tourism Department. The funds require a cash match from Rivers Edge on a dollar for dollar basis.
The following projects are included in the grant funding: replacing and installing a new stairwell in the Activity Centre, new flooring and carpet on the second floor of the Activity Centre, replacing the roof over the kitchen, conducting a water-sewer study of the property, basic renovations to the Chalet including new flooring and carpet, new stoves in the kitchen, painting the complete interior, remodeling the bathrooms and replacing all doors, and installing 35 new windows in the Country Inn.
The purpose of the projects is to enhance the guest experience at Rivers Edge. The renovations will be completed by mid-January 2018, and the water-sewer study will be finished in the spring 2018.
