Campfire Ban in City of Terrace Rescinded

Posted on: Jul 21 2014 - 10:22am in Emergency Services

Effective immediately, the City of Terrace is rescinding the campfire ban issued on July 17, 2014.

Open burning of any size or description, including fires with a burn registration number and industrial burning are still restricted within the jurisdiction of the City of Terrace, but small campfires will be permitted.  The campfires must be kept to a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or smaller. Anyone lighting a campfire must maintain a fireguard by removing flammable debris from the campfire area and must have a hand tool or at least eight litres of water available nearby to properly extinguish the fire. Please ensure that campfires are not lit or kept burning during windy conditions. Make sure that that the fire is fully extinguished and the ashes are cold to the touch before leaving the area for any length of time.

The Northwest Fire Centre rescinded its prohibition of campfires in the Nadina, Bulkley and Skeena Fire zones as of 4 p.m. Friday, July 18, 2014.

Grand Trunk Pathway Extension Officially Opens

Posted on: Jul 18 2014 - 2:58pm in City Hall

The Grand Trunk Pathway extension to Frank Street was officially opened by the City of Terrace today. The project, which started in 2013, saw the pathway continue westward from the intersection of Highway 113 to Frank Street, running along Highway 16. The project was supported by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, CN Rail; Communities in Bloom; Tree Canada; and BC Hydro.

Terrace Mayor Dave Pernarowski said “Green spaces in urban settings are important to maintain the high quality of life our residents enjoy. This extension of the Grand Trunk Pathway promotes environmental responsibility, beautification of the community and healthy lifestyles.”

The Honourable Coralee Oakes, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development said “Community pathways promote healthy living and provide opportunities for people of all ages to participate in physical activity. This extension to the Grand Trunk Pathway will mean more people in Terrace can use the pathway to get around town.”

The Grand Trunk Pathway, already a highly used walking and biking path, will be even more valuable as it extends active transportation opportunity along that corridor. By re-greening this area, urban trees will buffer noises from the rail yard, improve aesthetics in the area, and enhance a sense of character along the rail lines. It provides residents and visitors an opportunity to be outside and active.

The project was made possible by a number of grants, including $150,000 of a $373,500 total grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development’s Community Recreation Program, a $25,000 grant from CN Rail’s EcoConnexions From the Ground Up program, which was supported by Communities in Bloom, and $5,100 from BC Hydro’s Community ReGreening program to fund Tree Canada’s contribution towards the project.

The remaining funds from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development have gone towards further improvements on Kenney Street and on Graham Avenue – two other components of Terrace’s Active Transportation Network Linkage project thanks to the investment from the Community Recreation Program.

New Recycling Program

Posted on: Mar 18 2014 - 10:20am in Public Works

During the week of May 19th, 2014, the City of Terrace will begin collecting recycling materials from all households within city limits that currently receive curbside garbage collection.

For a detailed, interactive list of the materials that will be collected, please visit this website (http://recyclinginbc.ca/)

For the simplified list, which you can print out to have on your fridge, please see here

Recycling will be collected bi-weekly (every second week) and will not have a bag limit.  Household garbage will also now be collected bi-weekly, will alternate weeks with recycling, and will have a two container limit. Glass will be collected the last Monday of every month. The revised garbage, recycling and composting schedule is attached here

Glass bottles and jars will need to be set out in a rigid container of your choice, such as the one shown here  (http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/orbis-blue-under-desk-legal-recycling-bin-0423070p.html) or here http://www.homedepot.com/p/Argee-2-Gallon-Plastic-Pail-RG502/100184968

A recycling starter package is being delivered to every household the last week of April.
This starter package includes a 30 bag supply of recycling bags, a detailed list of accepted materials as well as a revised collection schedule. Once all the recycling bags in the starter package are used up, households will need to purchase their own translucent plastic bags.

For any questions not addressed online, or in your starter package, please email: pw@terrace.ca or call 250-615-4021.

Thank you in advance for familiarizing your household with this new program, especially the list of accepted/not accepted materials. Your participation will make this new program a success!

Community Services Guide

Posted on: Jan 29 2010 - 12:11pm in

The recent announcement that West Fraser is permanently shutting down its Eurocan operations in Kitimat means that residents in the Kitimat-Terrace Valley will face some challenges as jobs are lost in the region.

The District of Kitimat, City of Terrace and the RuralBC Secretariat, along with many community partners, have been working together to develop a Transition Strategy in response to the announcement.  This strategy is aimed at finding ways to help displaced workers from Eurocan and other businesses affected by the closure.

This Guide was designed to create one source of information for special programs, employment services, community and social services, worker adjustment and retraining opportunities in Terrace and Kitimat.  There is also information about government funding and financial services.

The Kitimat & Terrace Community Services Guide is sponsored by the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Community and Rural Development, Community Development Trust, and by Northern Savings Credit Union through its Community Reinvestment and Corporate Responsibility Initiative.  We gratefully acknowledge this financial support.

We sincerely hope this information will guide you to the experts who can help.  Together, we can move forward to the future.

Measuring up the North: Terrace

Posted on: Jan 01 2010 - 3:54pm in

As part of the Measuring Up the North initiative made up of 41 communities in the North, in 2007 the City of Terrace Council appointed volunteer community members interested in improving Terrace's accessibility for persons with disabilities, seniors and families with small children.  The Measuring Up Terrace Committee fulfilled its mandate and was dissolved by City Council in March 2012.

The City's Measuring Up Terrace Committee received grant funding through 2010 Legacies Now which enabled the Committee to hire a Co-ordinator who worked with the Committee to conduct a Community Assessment and Strategic Plan.  In addition, the funding provided money to undertake some small projects that will help to improve accessibility in the community.

A Community Assessment Survey was distributed throughout the community seeking input on the City's existing level of accessibility, and for suggestions on how to make Terrace more inclusive and accessible.  Responses were collected until July 31, 2008, and results of the survey are posted below:
