Sidewalks, curb extensions, pavement, among issues

  • Jan. 8, 2015 2:00 p.m.

The City of Courtenay is in the early design phase for several capital projects addressing aging infrastructure needs and surface repairs.

The public is invited to view preliminary design plans and fill out a survey at a drop-in public information session on Thursday, Jan. 15 between 7 and 9 p.m., in the lower Native Sons Hall dining and lodge rooms.

Preliminary designs will be available for the following roadways:

  • • 2nd Street: Cliffe to England Avenues
  • • 12th Street: Stewart to Urquhart Avenues
  • • Willemar Ave: 17th to 26th Streets
  • • Piercy Ave: 17th to 26th Streets
  • • England Ave: 10th to 12th Streets
  • • 10th Street: Piercy to Willemar Avenues
  • • 15th Street: Willemar Avenue to westerly end of street

Design considerations will include sidewalks, curb extensions, pavement, landscaping, boulevards, local parking needs, and cycling network linkages.

Lesley Hatch, the City of Courtenay’s director of engineering, said the meeting is an opportunity for the City to show the public the proposed improvements and gauge feedback on specific elements that are changing.

“This information session is open to everyone, and we are particularly hoping the residents who live on these streets will attend so they can find out about the proposed changes,” said Hatch.

Information notices are being delivered to residents living within the proposed improvement areas.

The projects will be considered amongst all City project priorities in the budget process in 2015 and beyond.

For those unable to attend the information session, the designs and public survey will be available online at starting Friday, Jan. 16.
