OPEN INVITATION

Public engagement Meeting/ Active workshop


Citizens of the Town of Comox are invited to join members of Council, senior management, and special interest groups to participate in an active workshop to be held at a meeting of the Committee of the Whole. The purpose of the workshop is to collectively consider future improvements to the Mack Laing Nature Park, including the potential use of money given in trust to the Town by Mack Laing in his will.

Council has recently resolved to move forward the Town’s court application to modify the trust applicable to the money. The Town’s original proposal to the court was to disassemble an existing structure (Shakesides) in Mack Laing Nature Park and use the money to construct a viewing site/platform in its place. Before asking the court to accept this proposal, members of Council would like to hear your ideas for the Mack Laing Nature Park that would increase public recreational enjoyment and continue to honour the conservation and education goals laid out by Mack Laing.

This facilitated, public engagement meeting/workshop will be held at the Town of Comox Community Centre, 1855 Noel Avenue on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

In preparation for this meeting we invite you to review background materials pertaining to the Mack Laing Nature Park by visiting the Town’s website at: www.comox.ca/macklaingpark
