In January 2017, the CRD and the Township of Esquimalt agreed on an amenity funding package associated with locating the wastewater treatment plant at McLoughlin Point. A one-time CRD contribution of $17 million—the McLoughlin Point Amenity Reserve Funds—will be used for capital projects in waterfront parks, recreation facilities, and a public safety facility.
The Township has launched a public engagement project to gather input on project ideas for the use of these funds to enhance our community. We are looking for input from all community members! Public input will be shared after each round of engagement.
Round 1 of engagement has been completed. Our summary of public input is available here. The Round 2 engagment process summary is available here.
Project ideas should benefit the entire community, meet diverse community needs, achieve multiple purposes and uses, support healthy lifestyle choices, and connect people to each other and the natural environment.
Following the public engagement process, the findings will be compiled and presented to the new Township Council early in 2019.
