Cumberland Lake Park Waterfront Infrastructure Renewal project

Numerous Comox Valley projects have received grants through the Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program.

The Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development announced that the Town of Comox has been granted $1 million for its marina project. The funds will go towards the construction of indoor and outdoor commercial and retail space in the Comox Marina.

Additionally, the Village of Cumberland has received a $169,000 infusion for the Cumberland Lake Park Waterfront Infrastructure Renewal project. The project objective is to implement access and layout improvements to the park’s boat launch facility and adjacent waterfront areas.

“We are very excited about this and what it’s going to mean for the campground,” said Cumberland Mayor Leslie Baird. “It will really raise the bar for the campground, and it’s a project that we would not have been able to do without the funding.”
