Port Alberni: Feasibility study to proceed with the Beaver Creek Volunteer Fire Hall renovations.
The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District Board has approved a Growing Communities Fund allocation of $50,000 towards a feasibility study for the Beaver Creek Volunteer Fire Hall project. Upgrades to the Beaver Creek Volunteer Fire Department are required to expand the building to add a clean room/locker room as required to keep the gear after an incident separate from the hall. The renovation will also improve the accessibility and increase the energy efficiency of the building. The project would include the installation of an elevator, heat pump and kitchen upgrade. In addition to the fire department usage, this building is also host to community meetings, local government elections and other functions. Initial cost estimate for this project is now approximately $1 million.
Tofino: Repurpose industrial buildings for 12 rental units.
Council has approved proceeding with a rezoning application for 12 residential units at 691 Campbell Street. No public hearing will be held. If successful, the project includes repurposing the two existing industrial storage buildings into residential units. One building would contain 11 dwelling units consisting of a mix of studio, 1 and 2-bedroom units and shared storage. The second building would be repurposed into a 2-bedroom single-family dwelling. To facilitate the proposed development, the property must be rezoned from the current Light Industrial zone to a new comprehensive development zone.
Mount Washington: New subdivision with 60 homes.
A traffic study has been completed and approved and blasting has taken place at the entrance to this new development. The Comox Valley Regional District Board approved a development permit for this subdivision on Mount Washington which will be developed in four phases. Approximately 60 single family homes are being proposed along with greenspace and a parking area. Future phases will require subsequent development permit applications. The applicant is hopeful that an early summer construction start date will enable contractors to develop the infrastructure required for this development.
