The Flin Flon Neighborhood Revitalization Corporation held their annual meeting last night. Their Chair Mark Kolt reported the pandemic made many of their traditional projects and activities impossible.
Their Small Grants Program supported the NorVa Centre for online content creation, Women’s Resource Centre International Women’s Week online programming, Flin Flon Arts Council community garden, Main Street Revitalization Task Force with upgrading abandoned storefronts on Main Street as well as planters and smoker receptacles, Flin Flon Station Musuem Christmas decorations, Flowers on Main Street, Pioneer Square stage enhancement, local arts activities and the Flin Flon Trout Festival summer concert series.
Kolt added working to build community partnerships, to strengthen community organizations and to support a broad spectrum of community revitalization initiatives consistent with the priorities set out in their five year plan will continue to be their primary focus. That includes housing, recreation and wellness, safety and crime, community capacity building and empowerment and beautification. They will also be doing more community outreach, to do more to get the word out in the community about what the FFNRC is doing, and to help more local groups access funding for their projects.
