Some Courtenay streets will close to traffic for big car show

Downtown Courtenay streets will temporarily close to traffic July 28 for the Comox Valley Classic Cruisers Annual Graffiti Bash Car Show.

Fourth, Fifth and Sixth streets between Cliffe and Fitzgerald avenues will temporarily close to traffic July 28 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the Comox Valley Classic Cruisers Annual Graffiti Bash Car Show, as approved last Monday by Courtenay council.

Hundreds of cars are expected at the 27th annual event.

Coun. Manno Theos praised the event for attracting tourists, some from south of the border, who generate revenue and draw attention to the downtown core.

Mayor Larry Jangula suggests a greater number of businesses consider opening their doors on the day of the event, especially ladies clothing stores.

Council approved a motion from Ronna-Rae Leonard to have City staff engage with the neighbourhood around the new hospital site to determine acceptable parking controls.

The idea is to maintain the integrity of the area that accommodates a number of public amenities. The hospital is being constructed between North Island College and Queneesh Elementary.
