The Glacier View Lodge Affordable Housing Project Open House is an event intended to help plan for the future of the Glacier View Lodge Property.
Join them at this first public meeting to learn more about the planning study, the property and to offer input on the vision for how the Glacier View Lodge property can better serve the Comox Valley.
The open house takes place Monday, Jan.20, 3-6 p.m. at the Little Red Church, 2182 Comox Ave., Comox.
Glacier View Lodge is a non-profit, complex care facility in Courtenay. As part of its commitment to the community, Glacier View Lodge has an interest in creating a development plan and vision for the 37 acres of land adjoining the lodge, to create an affordable housing community.
Vancouver Island University (VIU) master of community planning students have joined with Glacier View Lodge to help create a visioning plan for the site. A visioning plan results in a concept development plan and outlines community aspirations, goals and principles as a foundation for development decision making.
“At Glacier View Lodge we are pleased to be working with community partners and Vancouver Island University (VIU) on this project,” said James Taylor, president of Glacier View Lodge board.
“We look forward to hearing people’s ideas about the types of affordable housing they envision for the Comox Valley and who this housing is most necessary for. We are excited about the potential for this project and very much want to create an affordable housing community that creates connections and supports people to be healthy.”
