Mayor Paul Ives and other Comox representatives who attended last week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver continued discussions with the BC Ambulance Service about an undercover facility to house an ambulance station in Comox.For the time being, the Town’s ambulance is parked behind municipal hall in Ives’ former parking spot.The delegates invited BC Ambulance to an upcoming council meeting to provide an update. Ives also attended a presentation on affordable housing where communities considered strategies to ensure things like secondary suites, laneway houses, flex housing and variable development cost charges.”We do a lot of secondary suites,” Ives said. “I think it’s interesting to see what other communities are doing. They’re trying to take advantage of existing infrastructure and do a lot of infill-type housing, and housing that is close to transit.”
