Stelly’s X Road trail on track

District of Central Saanich will be talking with Tsartlip First Nation on a proposed pathway along Stelly’s Cross Road.

The District of Central Saanich will be talking with Tsartlip First Nation on a proposed pathway along Stelly’s Cross Road.

Council endorsed the pathway at Monday night’s committee of the whole meeting, which could see a path built between the western terminus of Stelly’s Cross Road and West Saanich Road. It would be constructed on the north side of the road.

The District and Tsartlip discussed the idea at a community to community forum in January, looking at the lowest cost option. They are currently looking at a gravel base material to allow for a multitude of uses.

The District will continue to be in communication with Tsartlip and refer the proposed final path concept plan to the First Nation for their endorsement.

Mayor Ryan Windsor said if Tsartlip is in agreement, then they would start to prepare the cost for next year’s budget and look for opportunities to get grant funding. That would determine how the municipality would want to fund that particular infrastructure.
