City to school public on Waterfront North study

The public is invited to a workshop on the Waterfront North Study Jan. 21, 4–7 p.m. in the Great Room at the Tseshaht Admin Building

The public is invited to a workshop on the Waterfront North Study next Tuesday, Jan. 21, 4–7 p.m. in the Great Room at the Tseshaht Administration Building.

The City of Port Alberni, Tseshaht First Nation, Hupacasath First Nation and Port Alberni Port Authority have partnered to develop the study for the Waterfront North area—an area that stretches along the Somass River from the Catalyst Paper mill to Paper Mill Dam Park. The plan will define a visionary future for this portion of the city’s waterfront.

At the workshop, community members can review the draft directions for the Port Alberni Waterfront North Study. Feedback that will help refine the vision and priorities for the waterfront area is welcome. The draft directions  have been created from public and stakeholder input to date.

Tuesday’s workshop will be a drop-in event with consultants and staff on hand for discussion and questions.

For more information about the Waterfront North Study, check the City of Port Alberni website project page (, updates on Facebook at “City of Port Alberni Local Government”  on Twitter (@cityportalberni).

The Tseshaht Building is located at 5091 Tsuma’as Dr.
