Vista Housing Society to submit rezoning and development permit applications this week
The Vista Housing Society has finalized design for its proposed affordable housing development for adults and seniors over the age of 55 at 2240 Comox Avenue in Comox and is expected to submit rezoning and development permit applications this week. The proposed project includes 74 self-contained units built on the site; 38 units will be designated as affordable housing with the remaining 36 units being set at market rates. This BC Housing project will likely be tender ready in the spring of 2016.
Comox Valley Regional District moves forward with plans for south sewer project
Next steps for the south sewer project in the Comox Valley Regional District include identifying locations for a new wastewater treatment plant and three pump stations. Properties will be reviewed for technical suitability, environmental concerns, financial costs, suitable zoning, and legal options around sale of land. The proposal includes one unit in each of the Union Bay, Marine Drive and Kilmarnock areas. It is expected a short-list of site options will be available at the next open house event, not yet scheduled.
Proposed project in Port Alberni to contain multiple buildings for light industrial or service commercial use
Complete Contracting has plans to build a light industrial mall off of Cherry Creek Road, behind the Alberni Mall. The proposal contains plans to construct a building for the applicant’s contracting business and build multiple units to lease to other types of light industrial or service commercial buildings. The property is located behind Home Hardware. The size of the units in the proposed industrial mall will vary. The style of the building allows for two units to become amalgamated together to increase the size depending on the tenant requirements.
