Housing complex approved by Courtenay council

Courtenay council approved Monday a zoning amendment to allow construction of a 94-unit apartment complex at Cliffe Avenue and Anfield Road.

The complex is dubbed Acadia on the Walk. Crowne Pacific Development proposes to divide the project into a pair of 47-unit buildings beside the Courtenay River Estuary, offering a gateway to the city's trail network.

The suites will be a mix of two and three bedrooms, renting for $900 to $1,100 per month.

Council received and referred to staff a report from the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy, which requested endorsement of a second edition of a Nature Without Borders report.

The report includes nine priority recommendations concerning ecosystems, drinking water resources and other essentials that "undermine life itself," Jack Minard told council in a presentation.

"This is not frill. This is eating, living and breathing. A balanced approach is what we're looking at. This is about our health and our grandchildren's health."

In 2008, council and other local governments endorsed the first edition report.
