Rossland needs to enhance its overall summer appeal.
That’s why Tourism Rossland has stepped up to engage the community about the prospect of a recreational and swimming site at Stargulch Reservoir.
Executive Director Deanne Steven has a proven track record in securing funding for initiatives that boost visitation.
A study shows it would cost about $160,000 to set up a beach at Stargulch and then about $45,000 a year to operate and maintain.
The city doesn’t have that sort of cash but Steven figures this is something the community is very much behind.
