North Island College Holds Open House for New Master Plan Tonight, March 6th

Tonight, Wednesday March 6 from 7 to 8 p.m., North Island College will host an open session for the community to learn about the college’s new master plan for the Comox Valley campus.

With the adoption of the 2011-2015 strategic plan, the college initiated a consultative process to review and revise the Comox Valley campus’s master plan to reflect the current vision for the future and incorporate the planning implications of a hospital located on a site adjoining the campus. The master plan is a key planning tool to articulate the vision for campus development for the future and to provide guidance for the built environment that reflects the vision.

The master plan indicates preferred land use patterns, circulation, open space and approximate building sites. It is intended to inform decisions on campus development, while being flexible in response to specific requirements of individual projects.

The community session will be held in the Stan Hagen Theatre, located at NIC’s Comox Valley campus, from 7 to 8 p.m.  For further information, visit
