On Thursday, Sept. 7, the Town of Comox will officially unveil the new Marine Services Building
The new Marine Services Building addressed the lack of retail space and community services at the Comox Marina by providing three retail spaces, public barrier-free washrooms, and a visitor information kiosk. This increased capacity supports tourism- related businesses, creates jobs, and provides long-term economic growth for the region.
The official grand opening and ribbon-cutting event will take place at 1 p.m. on Sept. 7, with Courtenay-Comox MLA Ronna-Rae Leonard, Island Coastal Economic Trust CEO Brodie Guy, Comox Mayor Nicole Minions, and members of town council in attendance.
Parking for the event is available on both the west and east side parking lots of Comox Marina Park, located at 504 Wilcox Street and 127 Port Augusta St. This event will be hosted outside of the Marine Services Building, weather permitting. Thanks to the Comox Firefighters Association, please bring a reusable water bottle to keep hydrated using our newly installed water fountain placed outside the Marine Services Building.
This building was funded by the Government of Canada through PacifiCan’s Canada Community Revitalization Fund, the Province of British Columbia through its Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program, and Island Coastal Economic Trust’s Capital and Innovation Program.
