Aquatic Strategy

Start: February 21, 2022

End: Summer 2022

Last Updated: June 13, 2022

Project Description:

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and the City of Courtenay are joining forces on a community-wide aquatics strategy that will shape the future of public swimming in the region for the next 25 years.

The CVRD and the City have recently completed independent Facility Condition Assessments for their respective aquatic facilities, which concluded that both the Comox Valley Sports Centre Pool and the City of Courtenay and District Memorial Outdoor Pool are nearing the end of their expected lifespans. The Aquatics Strategy will ensure long-term facility plans align with community expectations for aquatic services.

Community-wide consultation has now launched, asking Comox Valley residents and various organizations and stakeholders for feedback on aquatic facilities, including satisfaction with current conditions, accessibility, and features.

A draft of the Aquatics Strategy will be available for public review in early summer 2022.
