Join us on June 21, 2018 for our Annual National Indigenous Peoples Day (NIPD) Celebration.
For many years, the Comox Valley has come together at the main village site of the K’ómoks First Nation to celebrate the vibrant, diverse, and timeless cultures of the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples of Canada.
Residents are encouraged to register for Connect CVRD to be part of the conversation about CVRD initiatives. All feedback provided through this new tool will be considered and will assist future decision making.
By registering now, residents will be able to participate on available projects. New projects will be incorporated one at a time with announcements on opportunities for consultation as they come available.
As part of Bike to Work Week, Project Watershed is teaming up with the Broken Spoke to help you bike the estuary in style along the Courtenay Riverway walk with a special stop at Kus-kus-sum. Meet at the Broken Spoke at 9:30am. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bikes. If you don’t have a bike or would like to try something new, there are 4 electric bikes and 20 regular bikes available from the Broken Spoke.
The second annual Comox Valley Commuter Challenge is happening next week and residents can win prizes for taking transit, walking, cycling, carpooling, scootering or working from home at least one day.
On Access Awareness Day the CVRD is inviting residents with mobility issues, scooters or strollers to tour a stationary bus and see how BC Transit is helping to overcome logistical barriers to riding transit. Participants will be welcome to try the ramp and courtesy seating and then provide feedback or ask questions about the new transit features designed to improve the rider experience.
The Comox Valley Water System will move to Stage 3 Water Restrictions for a five day period beginning Monday, May 28. During this time BC Hydro will be draining their Penstock for unplanned repairs and the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) will need to move to its emergency back-up pump station to draw water from the Puntledge River. This equipment does not have the capacity to meet peak demand for water in our community without Stage 3 restrictions.
As part of its commitment to community sustainability, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) will be hosting a solar power and energy efficiency open house from 7 to 9 pm on Tuesday, May 29 at the CVRD boardroom, 550 Comox Road in Courtenay.
