A crew from Best Canadian Lighting and Signs in Vernon was assembling a new information kiosk at the corner of Victoria St. and Cedar Ave.

Information kiosk unveiled downtown Trail

“(It) is a great opportunity to showcase city information, projects and events." - Andrea Jolly

The City of Trail is opening up the community to visitors with a new information kiosk at Cedar Avenue and Victoria Street.

The kiosk has interchangeable panels that will highlight community events and city projects, says Andrea Jolly, communications and event coordinator for the city, providing information to both locals and tourists.

“The kiosk is located on a pedestrian route and will create a welcoming environment,” she said. “(It) is a great opportunity to showcase city information, projects and events.

“The large panels are visually pleasing and the kiosk itself is designed to match the minor gateway features already installed at Pine Cedar and Bay Avenues.”

Some of the panels will be seasonal, getting switched out to remain current and relevant, while other panels, like the City of Trail map, will remain on the kiosk more permanently.

The money for the project was approved by Trail council back in January as part of the city’s General Capital Plan for 2015. It cost $49,500 for the kiosk itself, plus another $900 for the six interchangeable panels at the site.

The work began late Monday afternoon and was completed this week.
