How far to Bowser?

New signs will have to wait until OTA finishes re-branding

rivers on the central Island are going to have to wait a little while longer to find out after the Regional District of Nanaimo deferred a request from the Lighthouse Country Business Association for more signage this week.

The RDN’s Northern Community Economic Development Select Committee made a recommendation to the board at Tuesday night’s meeting, urging them to defer the application for Lighthouse Country village signs for Qualicum Bay, Bowser, Deep Bay, Horne Lake and Spider Lake.

The reason for the deferment was to allow the Oceanside Tourism Association to complete its rebranding process which is currently underway, in order to ensure consistency between Lighthouse Country village signs and the rebranded Oceanside ones.


The motion to this effect, moved by Parksville director Marc Lefebvre and seconded by Qualicum Beach director Dave Willie, passed unanimously.
