An end may finally be in sight for the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation and their extensive fight for funding.
Serious doubt had begun to circulate around the future of the Peace River Palaeontology Research Centre and Museum after the Foundation was denied funding by the district this year.
After being forced to lay off staff and close in March, the museum briefly re-opened this summer thanks to community fundraising efforts.
A referendum was added to the recent municipal election ballots to determine how the public wanted to move forward in regards to museum funding.
46 percent of voters opted to keep funding the museum, but only if they make an effort to add more child, family, and tourism related attractions.
The museum houses one of the most impressive and rare collections of dinosaur fossils in North America.
