Public Works Open House Event - new date!

When: June 01 - 05:00pm - 07:30pm

Where: Public Works Yard, 39909 Government Rd

The open house has been postponed due to a weather advisory this week.  

Join us on Wednesday, June 1 from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

Drop-in to join members of Council, members of the Public Works team, and District staff at the Public Works Yard to celebrate and learn about all-things public works in Squamish. Bring the kids!

Kids will be able to check out the equipment, sit in an excavator, and learn about how the water and sewer system works in Squamish through an interactive display. All attendees will be entered into a draw for one of four beautiful District hanging baskets that will be created during the event as part of a horticulture showcase station. Staff will lead guided tours of the public works yard throughout the evening. Join us to learn more about the public works facility, plans for the replacement facility, how the District proposes to fund the replacement, and the critical role Public Works plays in our community. Light refreshments will be available.

National Public Works Week is an annual event held to recognise our superheroes who help keep communities strong by providing an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. This year's theme is "Ready & Resiliant" which highlights the ability of these professionals to perform regular public works duties and be ready at a moment's notice to react as first responders during natural disasters and overcome trials seen in the field.

They are what make our communities great places to live and work. So join us in celebrating our superheroes!
