A coalition of downtown business owners wants a $40,000 feasibility study for a pedestrian/bicycle bridge spanning the Columbia River between Selkirk College and Zuckerberg Island.

At its regular meeting Monday night, city council was asked to contribute $10,000 to the initiative. Presenter Jackie Letkeman told council that CBT has offered a verbal commitment to fund half the study, while Selkirk College would add a “modest  contribution”.

Also presenting on behalf of the group was Dr. Sandy Battista, owner of Head to Toe Holistic Health Clinic.
