OCTOBER 2020 UPDATE - Awaiting Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program Grant Award Decision.
District staff have applied to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program - Community, Culture and Recreation for the Trail Bay Ocean Front Boulevard Improvement Project and are currently awaiting the award decision. This information is expected mid-2021. If it is awarded, we would expect construction to start early 2022, with completion fall 2022.
On September 16, 2020 the following resolution was passed by Council:
"That Council direct staff to apply for the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program – Community, Culture, and Recreation grant for works which include a narrow one-way westbound vehicle lane, using Parks Development Cost Charges (DCC’s) to cover 25.67% portion ($154,158) of the costs for this project, its 1% Municipal Assist Amount ($6,005) from general revenue, with the other 73.33% ($440,375) coming from the Canada Infrastructure Program – Community, Culture, and Recreation for a total project amount of $600,538; and
That staff give consideration to increasing the number of handicap parking stalls on each end of the Boulevard."
The full report can be read here.
The proposed improvement includes:
- 16 parking stalls
- 2 serviced vendor stalls
- Additional benches and picnic tables. 2 tables are to be handicap accessible
- New 1.75m asphalt bike path
- New 1.75m concrete pedestrian path
- Bollard lighting
The District currently considers this area to have 15 parking stalls (at 7m a stall). This project would keep the total number of stalls.
