There are only a few days left in the survey for the 5th Street bridge colour choice, and the city wants you to choose your favourite.
The project is expected to start in the spring, and the Courtenay is inviting you to weigh in on three choices for the future colour of the bridge when it is recoated as part of the rehabilitation process.
The options are to maintain the classic green colour, or change it to either silver or black.
To have your say, launch the survey and click on your favourite. The survey closes next Wednesday.
Courtenay Mayor Bob Wells said the survey responses will help guide Council with the final decision on the bridge colour.
“The 5th Street Bridge is an iconic part of our downtown and this is a rare opportunity for our residents to tell us if they are fond of the current colour or would like to see something different,” said Wells.
“Even around our Council table this topic generated some friendly discussion, so I’m really curious to see how our community weighs in on this topic.”
