Architect’s schematic drawing of the proposed new regional district office building.

Comox Valley RD hosting open house regarding new Civic Centre office

  • Jun. 6, 2017 1:30 a.m.

The Comox Valley Regional District is hosting an open house on June 12, to answer questions regarding the proposed $11.7 million Comox Valley Civic Centre, planned for Harmston Avenue.

The regional district board gave its blessing May 30 to a schematic design for the building which will replace rented facilities on Comox Road.

The new building will provide more space, and be immune from annual flooding threats.

The board also agreed to borrow $8.2 million for the project through the “alternative approval” process.

Reaction from the public has been mixed, with many residents complaining about the cost.

Monday’s open house will be held at the CVRD boardroom in its current office location at 550B Comox Rd., from 4-7 p.m.

The AAP forms are expected to be posted on the CVRD website by July 6.
