Exciting Planning Projects!

We are excited to announce two planning projects that will impact the future development within Fort Nelson and the NRRM. We will be welcoming public engagement through both projects.

The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality is undertaking a planning process to prepare a Downtown Revitalization Plan for Fort Nelson.  This plan intends to support long-range goal-setting, visioning and planning to improve the downtown’s livability and increase its attractiveness to new businesses, residents, and tourists.
