Old bus garage site is now only for parking

News from the April 2 Qualicum Beach town council meeting.

• Potential changes to pedestrian traffic controls on Village Way at Qualicum Road will not occur until after town council receives a completed traffic study later this year.

 

 

• Council wants staff to give them more options for making the former school bus garage site into a full-time parking lot, until such time as a plan is developed for the future of the site. Coun. Davie Willie says he wants the town’s money’s worth for the site (it cost the town $1.5 million to buy from School District 69 last year) — even if that means it’s a parking lot for now. Staff are to have a list of options at the April 16 meeting.

 

 

• The town’s chief administrative officer, Mark Brown, was selected to represent B.C. on a Local Government Management Association junket to New Zealand in September, paid for by the LGMA.

 

 

• The council has eliminated the following committees of council: Parks and Recreation Commission, Select Committee on the Airport, Select Committee on the Environment.

 

 

• The town is working on a plan to replace the fire hall.

 

 

• The town is applying for grants to fund planned Memorial Avenue upgrades.

 

 

• Qualicum Beach will make Highway 19A one-way between Memorial Avenue and Crescent Road West on May 26 to accommodate Quality Foods’ Festival of Lights fireworks on the beach.
