The Steveston Harbour Authority's (SHA) new archway sign was completed and has been attracting the attention of visitors and residents alike.
The archway sign, at 6th Avenue near Chatham Street, is part of the authority’s project towards revitalizing Steveston’s fishing industry, whose goal is to spread over the Gulf Site and the Gulf of Georgia cannery.
The sign is a symbol to commemorate the importance of fishing and the fishing industry in Steveston’s history.
According to a previous proposal from SHA, the archway sign is a reflection of “the interlocking relationships between governments, industry, the public and First Nations in Steveston.”
A funding of $50,000 from the city’s community initiatives fund was approved by the council last year for the archway sign, while SHA, the Musqueam Indian Band and DFO-Small Craft Harbours covered the remaining cost.
