The City of Revelstoke is planning to upgrade the bathrooms next to Grizzly Plaza in order to alleviate summer lineups.
“Members of the Enhancement Committee had raised concerns about the limited capacity of the washroom building adjacent to Grizzly Plaza,” states a staff report by Alan Mason, the city’s director of economic development. “Particularly in the summer months, when there are concerts every evening during July and August, there are often long line-ups to access these facilities.”
A plan was presented to council on Tuesday, Mar. 22, outlining how the capacity of the washrooms could be increased without expanding the footprint of the existing building.
The plan maintains the existing washrooms for women, men and disabled. The women’s bathroom would include two stalls, the men’s would include one stall and a urinal, and the disabled would include one toilet.
The project is included in the city’s 2015–17 Resort Development Strategy, with a budget of $10,447.50, which would come from the tourism infrastructure fund.
Mason’s report doesn’t put a timeline on completing the work.
