Planned growth for jobs, economy, environment
Help our town become even more vibrant, with great paying jobs, exciting housing options, and a fantastic west coast lifestyle that invites our children and grand children to call Comox home.
Let’s put Comox on the map with a revitalized downtown village core. Give families, dowtown workers, seniors and tourists a vibrant walking promenade of bustling shops and restaurants, that stretches from our spectacular seaside up to Comox Avenue. Add a Granville Island style public market that showcases unique local foods and crafts from the Valley.
Our world class environment and scenery define our town. There is opportunity for cleaner waterways, more mixed use building design, more green technology, more walkable amenities, and greater health for our beaches and marine life. Let's make our seaside so pristine that we can once again harvest shellfish safely.
Small business is the lifeblood of our Valley economy and one of the keys to better jobs for current and future generations. We need more affordable business leases, a strong local market, positive incentives, and more resources to help new entrepreneurs thrive.
Public workers are the backbone of government and unions help their membership stay informed, properly represented, and challenged with career opportunities. Unions deserve a respected place at the leadership table and are vital allies in the future of Comox.
The future of our children’s success depends on the skills and knowledge they learn in school and throughout life. We need to attract great teachers, the latest resources, and job-ready programs, especially from the technology sector.
Local government plays one part in community success. But the successful future of Comox depends on you and your fellow citizens, plus many community partners, including First Nations, volunteer groups, non-profits and more.
