Some residents of the Qualicum Woods area in Qualicum Beach with their new sign. The sign is at the corner of Village Way and Qualicum Road.

New sign for Qualicum Beach neighbourhood

One resident says the new sign is great for the community

It’s like a Christmas gift from the town, said Qualicum Woods Residents’ Association president.

Carol Dowe, the QWRA president, said the new sign, located at the corner of Village Way and Qualicum Road, is great for the community.

“We’ve been here for years, people know about Qualicum Woods and now they can see the sign that we’re here and how to find us more easily,” she said.

Dowe said there has never been a sign for Qualicum Woods.

She said one Qualicum Woods resident, who has lived in the area for about 40 years, told Dowe that it “felt so good for the sign to be up (to show) that we are a community here.”

The sign has been in the works for the past two years, said Dowe. She also said that Don Kemp, who has painted a number of signs in the area, gave the hand-painted sign at a reduced rate. Dowe said the sign cost $400, and she and her husband Fred provided the materials.

The Town of Qualicum Beach, especially the public works department, “did an exceptional job of installing the sign,” said Dowe.                   — NEWS Staff
