City council briefs

Art banners, airport protection, distillery approval and more at Port Alberni city hall this week.

City supports Yes 2 Know

City council has donated up to $750 for youth admission passes to RCMP Drug Awareness Services to support the youth empowerment summit at Alberni District Secondary School on April 5-6.

Art banners a go

The city will install banners created by the late First Nations artist Art Thompson on the poles around the community. The banners were last used in 2014 and will be used in 275 locations. These banners will be different than the ones in the Rotary Arts District or the Maritime Heritage Centre.

Grandview walkway request

A group of 16 residents living near Grandview Road have requested that the city construct a safe walking path along Grandview to Compton Street. The request has been forwarded to the engineering department for review.

Clutesi RFP delayed

The deadline for the Clutesi Haven development request for proposal has been pushed back to June 30, 2016, due to a lack of responses that fully satisfied the RFP terms. The Hupacasath First Nations, as well as other parties, requested more time to develop business cases and feasibility studies for their proposals.

Long Beach Airport protection

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District has entered into an agreement with the Tofino Volunteer Fire Department to provide structural firefighting to the Long Beach Airport for $1 for the one-year term.

Distillery approved

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District voted to consider a temporary use permit for a craft distillery on Beaver Creek Road. The ACRD will now issue notice via newspaper and to neighbouring residents to notify them and allow for comments.
