Downtown BIA requests funds for downtown mural project
Some new artwork is being added to the Golden Carriage Building near the corner of 5th and Fitzgerald in Courtenay.
The downtown BIA is behind the project, along with locally-based Flywheel Studios.
BIA president Jenny Deters says they’re now asking for some funds from council to support the project. Deters says the BIA is asking for $5,000 from council. Part of the funds would go towards this mural, with other monies going towards future murals.
Deters says the mural is a great way to revitalize downtown.
Council has shown strong support for the project and the revitalization of downtown. So far, about $10,000 of $20,000 has been raised to help complete the mural.
