Alberni success pathway plans advance

The Success Pathway will run from ADSS to Kendall Street and will connect with the AV Multiplex and Alberni Athletic Hall in between.

The Alberni District Secondary School Pathway to Success continues on its path to becoming a reality. Students from Civic Studies 11 at ADSS are planning a pathway between ADSS on Roger Street to North Island College.

The three-metre wide pathway will run from ADSS to Kendall Street and will connect with the AV Multiplex and Alberni Athletic Hall in between. The path will feature picnic tables, art pieces, Haiku poems along the walkway, a dedication wall and an archway, the students said.

Meanwhile, they have approached three excavation companies about how much it will cost to dig the pathway.

Students have also developed a pamphlet outlining the project and plan to distribute it to neighbours and the general public.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for January.
