As the district readies itself for 911 service, situations where a road splits and the two parts still have the same name are being changed to help emergency services.

While the changes are meant to aid first responders, the changes also allow for the recognition of contributions by community members.

Past resident, Lillian Carnell was on the board or council in the early years as well as the chair of the Village of Fort St. James  and will be celebrating her 100th birthday in the Cherry Park Residences in Pentiction, where she now lives.

 

Carnell’s name will now be bestowed upon one part of the Murray Subdivision Road, to celebrate reaching her centenary and recognize her past contributions to the community as an elected official.
