Courtenay council is meeting Wednesday to discuss its five-year financial plan.
The city says due to the pandemic, many 2020 projects were postponed and carried forward to this year.
These join the other previously proposed projects for 2021 that were included in last year’s Financial Plan.
For 2021 alone, Courtenay plans to set aside $14,697,100 in projected capital expenditures.
Some of the biggest ones planned for this year include public Washrooms in Downtown Courtenay, 17th Street Bike Lanes, and HVAC repairs for the Comox Valley Art Gallery and the Courtenay Firehall.
Other projects set to happen over the next couple of years include consistent upgrades to the Cycling Network Plan and the Courtenay Riverway Extension.
Courtenay also says it will be getting a $4,149,000 grant under the COVID-19 Safe Restart Grant for Local Governments.
Some of that money will be used for city hall renovations to allow for safe reopening and downtown washrooms for the public and vulnerable populations.
Wednesday night’s meeting will discuss the upcoming projects and vote on whether or not to approve the 2021-2025 financial plan.
