The Mossom Creek hatchery rebuild project moved a step closer to reality after Port Moody council unanimously approved a building permit application and a development permit application Tuesday.

A ground breaking ceremony for the project is expected to take place July 17 and the Burrard Inlet Marine Enhancement Society which runs the hatchery expects to have a shell of the building ready in time for salmon spawning season in October.

However, $150,000 in funding must still be raised this summer to get the bare bones first phase of the project completed.

Meanwhile, a gala fundraising event to help close the funding gap is planned for Sunday, July 13 in the galleria at Port Moody city hall, featuring a gourmet salmon barbecue and auction. Tickets are $45 and are available by calling 604-787-9758 or buying them online at www.mossomcreek.org.
