The Village will enter into a partnership with the Comox Valley Disc Golf Club for the development of a 18 hole disc golf course in Coal Creek Historic Park. The partnership agreement sets out that the course will be developed in the fall of 2015 with the course open to public use on a trial basis ending December 31, 2016.
Council also approved a partnership with the Get on Board Youth Society to install a skateboard half-pipe ramp on one of the tennis courts at Village Park. A temporary barrier would be installed between the two tennis courts. The Village has applied for a grant from the Canada 150 program for the construction of a permanent skatepark and other hard surface features in this area.

Also at the August 10, 2015 meeting, Council approved a social procurement framework which would form the basis of a future policy to leverage public dollars to achieve desirable and targeted social impact for the Village through its future competitive bid and purchasing activities. The Village’s procurement framework will expand on the traditional understanding of “best value” to include the generation of positive societal benefits, alongside high quality and competitive bids.
Council also decided to proceed with the development of a community grant program. Details of the program will be brought forward for discussion at a future council meeting.
