Comox Valley Regional District assessing parks after heavy snowfall

The Comox Valley Regional District's CVRD parks department is conducting an assessment of its parks and trails — inspecting for downed trees, snow levels, blocked roads, etc.

Please remain out of the parks until further notice. We hope to have the “boots on the ground” assessment done by Wednesday afternoon and will be able to provide further information then.

After a power outage due to the bad weather Monday caused the CVRD’s sports centre to shut down in the afternoon, everything is back to normal in both the sports and aquatic centres today. Power is on, programs on as scheduled, and the parking lots are clear.

And again a reminder, Emcon, not the CVRD, has jurisdiction and authority for snow clearing and road maintenance in the rural areas of the Comox Valley. Emcon’s number in the Comox Valley is 250-336-8897.
