Community Enhancement Grants
The Winter City Committee helped to enhance winter-life for residents by offering Community Enhancement Grants. These grants were matching grants of up to $1000. It is often that little bit of "seed money" that can make the difference in getting an idea off the ground and into action! The projects undertaken as a result of these grants contributed to our community by fostering civic pride and growing a proud and confident community.

Prince George Skates
The Winter City Committee hosted PG SKATES at the Outdoor Ice Oval on Sunday, February 19, 2012 from
1:00 - 3:00pm. This event was held with the intention of encouraging residents of Prince George to gather to enjoy one of the benefits of living in a Winter City – having the opportunity to skate on an outdoor ice rink. Hot chocolate was available, as well as face painting and entertainment. 2012 was the second year for what was planned to be an annual event and it was ideal for families and students as there was no cost to participate. Ice Rink Maps showing 22 other ice rink locations were available at this PG Skates event and can still be downloaded by clicking here.
2012 Prince George Skates:
When: Sunday, February 19th
Time: 1:00 - 3:00pm
Location: Ice Oval (behind the CN Centre)
Bring your skates & helmets and skate for Free.
Complimentary hot chocolate, face painting & entertainment!
Nominate Your Neighbour’s Winter Lights
Front yards and businesses with festive winter lights enrich our neighbourhoods. That’s why the Prince George Winter City Committee asked the public to help recognize those who had taken the time to decorate their front yards (or business frontages), by nominating friends, neighbours and businesses through a fun Winter Lights Recognition Program.
Not a competition, the goal was to let your neighbours know that their efforts were appreciated – as well as encourage others to follow suit. Nominating a neighbour, a business - or even yourself - is easy. Nominators simply printed the Nomination Form, filled it out by hand and submitted the completed Nomination Form to the Service Centre at City Hall. Nomination Forms were available here or at City Hall’s Main Service Centre. Those who nominated a neighbour were given a cheerful Winter Lights Recognition sign to present to their neighbour to display. Now’s the time to say ‘Thanks’ to your favourite neighbourhood winter light display!
Nomination forms were accepted until January 14th, 2011.
