An Alternative Approval Process (AAP) has launched in Courtenay to gain elector assent for the City of Courtenay to dispose of a 232.6 square metre area of undeveloped parkland behind Harbourview Boulevard in "The Ridge" subdivision.

The disposition would be for the purpose of facilitating strata road access from 3327 Harbourview Boulevard to a proposed 12-lot subdivision at 4070 Fraser Road. Public access would continue across the disposed parcel to the remaining park land.

The parkland in question is valued at $22,983 as determined by an independent property appraisal. If the project proceeds, the parkland would be purchased by the applicant, with the funds allocated to the City’s parkland acquisition reserve fund.
