Sylvan lighthouse committee set
A community committee will be formed to build a new Sylvan Lake lighthouse.
About 50 people attended a meeting on Thursday called by the town’s Rotary Club, which is leading the reconstruction effort.
“This meeting was to generate enthusiasm and get some people for a committee,” said the club’s Trevor Sigfusson.
Rotarians will be contacting those who volunteered to set the membership of the committee, which will meet within the next month to begin preliminary work, including fundraising.
“We have to get design, functionality and location set before we can set a budget,” he said, adding a Rotarian’s design firm has already volunteered its services.
“People are really on board and want to make it a focal point of downtown.”
The previous lighthouse was demolished last month after falling into disrepair.
