Tri-Cities to receive a $40,000 grant to implement Smart Kootenays Mobility Platform

The communities of Nelson, Castlegar, Rossland and Trail, in partnership  Communities Futures, Selkirk College and local technology entrepreneurs worked collaboratively to apply for the BC Smart Communities Pilot funding to develop and test a mobility platform that will provide area residents with information about road safety, closures, wait times and natural disasters. The platform will help people make smart transportation decisions, resulting in safe and efficient travel that decreases accidents and reduces pollutants.

Castlegar

Castlegar (population of 12,466 with surrounding Regional Districts I & J) is situated at the confluence of the Kootenay and Columbia Rivers. This relatively new (incorporated in 1966) mill town sits in a valley that is steeped in the heritage and culture of the Doukhobors, who migrated here in the early 20th century.  Residents enjoy access to outdoor recreation and parks. Castlegar locals love their city and their sports, producing numerous special events and tournaments throughout the year.
