Lakes District Maintenance Ltd., in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, volunteered to upgrade Radley Beach in Burns Lake, BC. A part of a province-wide community-partnership project with the B.C. Roadbuilders Association, of which Lakes District Maintenance Ltd. are members, and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Lakes District Maintenance Ltd. donated manpower and heavy equipment toward completing this project.
The criteria for choosing the project under the community-partnership program was for one that would benefit not only the entire community, but also everyone that visits the community. The Village of Burns Lake was approached by Lakes District Maintenance Ltd. with the offer of volunteering to complete a project that would fit into the criteria. With the Village of Burns Lake helping to design the finished project so that it fit their vision, work began on October 4, 2011.
Lakes District Maintenance Ltd. donated 4 crew members, two truck and pups, a grader and a backhoe to complete the project. Working for two days, Lakes District Maintenance Ltd. hauled away the old sand on the beach, replacing it with new sand they hauled in from Kelway Pit, then leveled the beach off and landscaped it to the plans from the Village of Burns Lake. The new sand was donated by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
