Economic assets: food, trails, employment

Food
A small restaurant has opened but Dave’s Café needs local support to survive. The Café has plans to open in the evening and needs to find skilled staff. The café also needs to serve high quality fresh food in order to maintain a local customer base and to pull travelers off Longwoods Road.

Trail Development.
If the natural heritage is to be developed, we need well-marked groomed trails in the rural area for bicycling, horseback riding, four-wheelers, and snowmobiles. This requires much more planning. All users are not compatible on the same trail. Many declining rural communities have used trail development and tourism as the basis for economic revival.

Employment.
Existing employers need a bigger base of skilled labour. Incoming residents need employment.
