A $1.3-million amendment to the regional district financial plan for the G.P. Vanier artificial turf field project was approved Tuesday by the committee of the whole.
It will be considered by the CVRD board for final approval July 30.
The City of Courtenay has contributed $860,000 and the Comox Valley United Soccer Club $400,000. A fourth partner, School District 71, is providing land for the field, which is currently an all-weather gravel pitch with lights. It is adjacent to the track.
The CVRD is kicking in $190,000 to the project. Construction is expected to begin next spring and finish in the late summer of 2014.
