Funding cancelled for Six Mile Coulee pathway project

June 17, 2020

By a 7-2 vote, Lethbridge City Council has decided to cancel the $1.75 million dollar Six Mile Coulee Pathway Project.

Council also asked city staff to come up with a new way to improve the safety and sustainability on the popular trail system.

Some of the improvements would have included adding limestone to the first three kilometres of the trail. Current users were opposed to the idea saying the changes would have disrupted the more natural state of the trail. City councillor Blaine Hyggen sponsored the motion to rescind the $1.75 million dollars in construction funding.
