Cumberland: construction moving forward for a new Childcare Centre
School District #71 has awarded the Construction Management contract for the new Childcare Centre in Cumberland to Heatherbrae Builders Co. Ltd. In January 2022, The Comox Valley School District received a $2.95 million grant from the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) for 75 new childcare spaces to be built at the Cumberland Childcare Centre on the site owned by SD71 and shared with Cumberland Community Elementary School. The elementary school will remain in full operation during the construction of the childcare building. Construction is expected to start this summer with completion by the 2023/2024 school year.
Campbell River: proposed Conference Centre with 64 residential units
City Staff continue to review a Major Development Permit for form and character for a new Conference Centre with 64 residential units. This is the last phase of redevelopment at the Campbell River Golf and Country Club. The subject parcel is located at the corner of Shetland Road and Petersen Road. The proposed five-storey building envisions a conference and banquet space on the ground floor that can accommodate up to 350 people. The ground floor has been designed with the ability to break up the space into as many as five smaller spaces, providing flexibility for events of varying sizes. A catering kitchen next to the banquet space allows for food and beverage service to any sized event. Sharing the event space, the ground floor proposes additional office space to support the growing operations of the Country Club. The four stories above will house 64 residential units consisting of eight one-bedroom units, 48 two-bedroom units, and eight three-bedroom units.
