Bringing in a little TV tourism to Qualicum Beach

Town staff looking into keeping Chesapeake Shores mural

Coun. Neil Horner is hoping to bring some TV tourism to Qualicum Beach.

Horner brought forward a motion from the select committee on parks, recreation and culture at last Monday’s (May 29) council meeting. The motion, which passed unanimously, directed staff to contact the owners of the Coastal Community Credit Union building and the Chesapeake Shores staff to discuss the possibility of keeping the Chesapeake Shores mural on the credit union wall after filming wraps up, along with an informational plaque describing the local filming.

“If you’re going to take advantage of the fact that people all across North America are looking at Qualicum Beach, having some lasting iconic image at least, I think, would be useful,” Horner said.
