NIPAWIN — With the former water treatment plant site ready for further development, the Town of Nipawin is looking for proposals on what to do with the land.
The town will start accepting development proposals into the winter with hopes of starting a project in the next building season. That will depend on the project proposals that come forward, said Jeff Hrynkiw, land planning advisor and development officer.
There was a substantial expense in bringing that land back to development conditions following the demolition of the old water treatment plant this past spring and summer, Hrynkiw said, so he was happy to see the council’s willingness to further develop a space on the property that will benefit the community.
Rennie Harper, Nipawin’s mayor, was happy to see council discussing the issue at its meeting Sept. 14 and moving forward to ensure the space will be further developed.
“It's a decent space, and it's in a good location, and I hope the space gets used in a way that grows our community in some good ways.”
