District seeks to secure waterlot licence at end of Horne Street

Licence would allow creation of a unique community amenity

The District of Mission is applying to the provincial government for a waterlot licence on the Fraser River at the south end of Horne Street.

In a report to council, Mission’s director of development services says the licence would secure the area, which has significant historical and cultural value, for the community to enjoy.

The area has scenic views and was part of Mission’s original townsite, said Mike Younie, explaining the licence would extend about 50 metres into the Fraser River and the district would work with Sturgeon’s Development GP Ltd. to complement its project.

“Securing the area could allow the district to construct a new pier to the revised flood plain elevation which would provide a unique community amenity as a viewpoint, fishing area and part of the Experience the Fraser trail,” states the report.
