The first stage of the Smithers Regional Airport Terminal Modernization Project has begun. A Request for Proposals (RFP) to provide detailed design and engineered drawings, as well as contract administration services, has been released with a closing date of May 26, 2016. The RFP has been posted on BC Bid and the complete document is available on the Town's website at http://www.smithers.ca under Businesses/Bid Opportunities.

"By increased accessibility and capacity, the modernization of the Smithers Regional Airport terminal will strengthen the competitive position of Smithers as an economic and regional hub," said Mayor Taylor Bachrach.

The steps following the RFP include conducting an Alternate Approval Process (AAP). The AAP is a legal vehicle which allows the public to oppose the project if they do not want the Project to proceed.
