Barbara Price is running for re-election as a Comox councillor.

“It is a privilege to represent Comox citizens on council,” said Price, who has already served two terms as councillor, as well as four terms as a regional director.

Her broad range of committees served on include the environment, health, food security, transportation, affordable housing and the economy, and she is also elected second vice-president of the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities.

Before raising a family in Comox, Price worked as a planner and has a masters in town and regional planning.

Price is an advocate for a healthy community with plenty of green space and connected trails. She was instrumental in the protection of Macdonald Wood Park and the Comox North East Woods. Recently, under her leadership as president of the Friends of Comox-Lazo Forest Reserve (FOCLFR), the Friends were successful in lobbying for the preservation of the remaining forested Crown land in the North East section.

Price also serves as chair of the co-management committee for the Comox-Lazo Conservation Area.

Price spearheaded a grant through council that brought Active School Travel Planning to Comox. The aim is to create safer, healthier travel for children and to end traffic jams around schools. Being responsive to the concerns of the neighbourhood is also high on her agenda.

“I listen when a neighbourhood speaks,” said Price.

She is currently working with Comox Business in Action (BIA) to bring back the popular Heritage Week celebrations which she first introduced in 1991.

Living on the Comox peninsula for over 30 years, Price is committed to working with the community to bring about positive changes.

She can be reached by phone at 250-339-4037 or via email at
