PRRD mulls Peace River Lookout study

first_imgBy Christine Rumleskie He says the board enjoyed the plans, and instructed staff to move into ‘Phase One’ of the development, which is the stability and environmental analysis.Hadland says that study won’t be done until 2011, because the board did not allocate funds for the analysis in the 2010 budget. He says it could take one year to complete the study. If the site can be safely developed, then the PRRD will decide whether or not to proceed with the four other stages.The feasibility study indicates that it will cost up to $1 million to complete all five phases to fully develop the lookout site. The plan incorporates public washrooms, interpretive signs, a public viewing deck and a paved parking lot.To view a copy of the detailed plan, click on the attachment below.Advertisement It’s going to take a while before Fort St. John residents see improvements to a popular lookout site.- Advertisement -After two public consultations, Focus Corporation presented a feasibility study to the Peace River Regional District on Thursday in Chetwynd.The study explained what it will take to develop the Peace River Lookout, located at the south end of 100th street.The proposed project is split into five phases, beginning with geotechnical and environmental studies.Area ‘C’ Director Arthur Hadland attended Thursday’s PRRD meeting.

Woman saved from blaze

Jay Jette. “They worked as a team to do what needed to be done. They went above and beyond.” Burbank Fire Department Capt. Bob Reinhardt echoed the sentiments. “They acted in a very heroic manner,” he said. “We’re very proud of them.” Hawver deflected the praise, saying, “It really is part of the job. That’s what we’re here for.” Fire officials said the blaze started in the trash basket, where Fox’s live-in caretaker had thrown out her cigarette before falling asleep. She woke up to flames and smoke and alerted neighbors, who called 911. BURBANK – Police Sgt. Jay Hawver was drinking iced tea at the Coral Cafe at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday when he got a radio call – a house fire in the 400 block of North Griffith Park Drive, elderly woman possibly inside. Among the first at the scene, Hawver braved thick smoke and searing flames to pull 91-year-old May Fox out of her home, which caught fire after a still-smoldering cigarette was tossed in a wicker trash basket. After police helped Fox to safety, paramedics rushed her to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, where she was listed in critical condition in the intensive care unit. Even though Fox’s fate was uncertain, officers and firefighters praised Hawver and four of his colleagues for their valiant attempt to save her life. Police were the first to arrive and quickly pulled Fox out of the home. Hawver suffered a cut on his hand while climbing through a broken window to save her. “I couldn’t see anything, the smoke was so thick,” said Hawver, a 12-year department veteran. “The heat was very intense. When I first got in, I stumbled over a chair or a table, and was calling out for the lady, ‘Are you here? Is anybody in here?’ I didn’t know her name.” He said he heard coughing and moaning in the room and started feeling around. “I could feel a person. I could feel the leg,” he said. “I took ahold of her and picked her up off the bed and then turned back toward where I knew the window was at.” By that time, another officer, Jennifer Downs, was inside the room. She and Hawver lifted Fox out of her bedroom through the window and into the arms of other officers outside. They sat her on the lawn to give her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before paramedics took her to the hospital. While she was fighting for her life, neighbors reacted with shock about their beloved friend, who they said loves gossip, ballroom dancing and singing along with her TV. “It’s an empty hole in the pit of my stomach,” said Flo Johnson, 66, a friend for 45 years. “She was a great lady. She was a fun lady. Everybody loved her. … She was a good neighbor. She was a good friend.” Helen Gregos, 83, a retired nurse, used to give Fox her medication before she had round-the-clock caretakers. “We’ve been friends a long time,” said Gregos, who has been praying that Fox recovers from her ordeal. “She knew all the news that was going on in the neighborhood: who was visiting who, which car pulled into my driveway and who was sleeping with who. What she didn’t see, she manufactured. “She’s very resilient. I expect her to come out of this.” Jason Kandel, (818) 546-3306 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
