The Town of Comox is planning an open house next week to give an update on the Marina Park vitalization project.

The project – with a goal to be complete by fall 2016 – includes a harbour services building, two new buildings with recreation spaces for rendezvous boating gathering as well as public meeting spaces for up to 70 people each.

Staff and the architect of the project will be on hand Sept. 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the d’Esterre House to answer questions and have more information on the project.

Last year at a presentation to council, architect Steve Cohlmeyer hoped the design would not only make it easier, more accessible and more inviting for the public to get to the park and waterfront, but also to increase the reasons to visit.

With a Phase 1 cost of $1.6 million, funding would be split 25 per cent by the Town of Comox ($400,000), and a grant by Island Coastal Economic Trust (for $400,000) and 50 per cent by Western Economic Diversification.
