Waterfront Improvement Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Colwood is excited to be creating a Waterfront Improvement Plan which will provide the community with a master plan for this vital area and guide Council decision-making for the next 10 years.

The plan will outline how a multi-use pathway could connect the Lagoon Beach from the Lagoon Bridge to Royal Beach and inform future detailed design and construction of new waterfront landscaping, features and amenities, such as seating, signage, lighting and washrooms.

Planning will be informed by existing policies (including the Official Community Plan and Parks and Recreation Master Plan) as well as public and stakeholder input. The final plan will identify options for specific public realm improvements within the study area to enhance the character and recreational utility of the waterfront while protecting the highly sensitive wildlife habitat and archeological resources.

Sneak Peek: Preliminary concepts for a multi-use trail along the Colwood waterfront

Preliminary concepts have not yet been presented to Colwood Council but will be presented to the Colwood Waterfront Committee on June 24.

Council's input at their regular meeting on July 12 may result in adjustments to these concepts, followed by comprehensive engagement where you will be encouraged to provide input and share your thoughts.
