Toll booth down

3L Developments has stopped charging motorists on logging road

The toll booth on Duncan Bay Main between the Puntledge River and Forbidden Plateau Road has been taken down.

Last year, 3L Developments president Dave Dutcyvich had the booth installed. Cars were being charged $2 and trucks $5.

“I just decided to put it down,” he said.

His Nanaimo-based company hopes to develop a subdivision near Stotan Falls — a popular swimming hole that sits underneath Comox Logging Road/Duncan Bay Main. His plans are also proposing 260 acres of public parkland/greenspace, which includes Stotan and 20-plus kilometres of trails.

Last year, Dutcyvich had planned to charge people wanting to access Stotan. However, a sign at the site reads: ‘With your support we will create our own Stanley Park at no cost to the residents of the Comox Valley.’

“Let the public use it,” he said. “I like to see kids have lots of fun…I’ll pay the insurance.”
