The purpose of the Preliminary Concept Design Report is to provide design and development costing projections for the Shuswap-North Okanagan (Sicamous-to-Armstrong) Rail-Trail Corridor in order to support the process for:

  1. contracting environmental assessments and bid-ready engineering technical designs with Class C Costing,
  2. securing capital funds to construct the 50 kilometre greenway corridor, and
  3. realizing the full social/economic opportunities of the corridor for the Splatsin, Shuswap, and North Okanagan communities.

This preliminary Concept Design Report was prepared by Phil McIntyre-Paul of The Shuswap Trail Alliance for the Shuswap North Okanagan Rail-Trail Inter-Jurisdictional Governance Committee (Splatsin, Columbia Shuswap Regional District, Regional District of North Okanagan and respective Municipal/Regional Areas)
