Trail and Rossland forge new recreational agreement 

A one-year recreation service agreement between Trail and Rossland has come into effect to promote community well-being, resource sharing and improved recreational opportunities.  

According to a media release, the continued regional collaboration will allow residents of both communities to use the facilities in Trail, including the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre, the Trail Memorial Centre, the Willi Krause Fieldhouse and other programs at the reduced Trail Resident Program (TRP) fee. 

Members of both councils say they are thrilled with the new agreement to promote regional services, and it is a great way to build on the TRP that was introduced in 2009. 

Trail mayor Colleen Jones says putting resources together allows both communities to create stronger more vibrant recreation facilities. 

“This collaboration represents a triumph of community spirit and shared vision,” she says. “By pooling resources and expertise, we can create a more vibrant recreational landscape for residents and visitors alike. 

“This agreement is a testament to the strength of our communities when we work together.” 

Rossland mayor Andy Morel says he agrees with Jones’s statement, and also that it is a great way to create state of the art facilities. 

“Our two cities share a rich history and a passion for recreation,” he says. “By combining our efforts, we can amplify the impact of our recreational initiatives and ensure our residents have access to top-notch facilities and programming.” 

The release says the agreement is expected to be the framework for the future to maximize the benefits of communities working towards a common goal. 

The agreement came into effect on Jan. 1, and is expected to last for one year.
