We believe that a healthy democracy can only survive when its citizens debate the critical issues of the day. This means we must have an on-going dialogue where we share our thoughts with our fellow citizens.

Towards that purpose World Community created a “magazine” style website where community groups from the Comox Valley and beyond could share their information and media relevant to local social justice, environmental and democracy issues.

Informed by extensive public input, including a temporary “pop-up “intersection this past summer, over $3.2 million in infrastructure upgrades to 5th Street will start this spring. Come fall, 5th Street will be an attractive gateway to downtown Courtenay and walking, and cycling routes on the corridor will be significantly improved.

An information session will be held for citizens, businesses and community groups to learn more about the final design, results of the “pop up” intersection study, and what to expect during construction.
