Dave Willie is seeking re-election to town council in Qualicum Beach.

“The last three years have been challenging with many difficult decisions, but in the end I think we made huge inroads in building the capacity for a stronger and more resilient community,” Willie said in a news release. “The reduction in administration savings in excess of $300,000 a year and the hiring of a new CEO after an extensive search will provide the community and council with better access to community involvement and participation in ongoing community decisions.”

Willie said there have been many signs of improved access to a variety of housing options close to the downtown core, including the new affordable housing project under construction on the old Kiwanis site with 34 new units and the new year will see the completion of the Waterfront Master Plan, allowing residents to discuss their long-term visions for access and improvements to the waterfront such as lighting, boardwalks to name a few.

Willie also said the new year will also see discussions around the long term plans for the bus depot site and the South Qualicum Beach OCP, including the airport and the long-discussed Pheasant Glen project.

“I would ask for your continued support in allowing me to represent your voice in Qualicum Beach.”
