Comox opens new marine services building

The Town of Comox unveiled its new marine services building this week and it will provide needed retail and other services to the marina park.

It will address the need for community services with three retail spaces, public barrier-free washrooms and a visitor information kiosk, according to the town.

They add the increased capacity will support tourism related business, create jobs and long-term economic growth for the area.

It was funded through the federal government’s PacifiCan Canada Community Revitalization Fund, the province of British Columbia through their Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program, and Island Coastal Economic Trust’s Capital and Innovation Program.

“Comox Marina is in the heart of the community where people of all ages gather year- round — and yet it’s also a vital transportation hub for the Comox Valley,” said Island Coastal Economic Trust CEO Brodie Guy.

“We’re grateful to partner with the Town on this important investment that is already strengthening local businesses, entrepreneurs and community organizations.”
