Plans to build a permanent building for Sun Peaks Health Centre are uncertain with the Sun Peaks municipal council unable to secure a much needed government grant that was expected to help fund the project.
The Sun Peaks municipal council applied for the Towns for Tomorrow grant earlier this year hoping to receive $400,000. This amount was to be added to the Sun Peaks Health Association’s $400,000 reserve set aside for the construction of a permanent building.
The proposed two-level, 4,300 sq. ft. building is currently pegged at
approximately $1.7 million.
The existing health clinic, which operates out of a modular, is open twice a week and provides basic necessary health care to the mountain community’s residents and visitors.
