Outdoor Pop-Up Info Booth For Campbell River Waterfront Project

Construction began on June 10, 2019. Close to two kilometres of water and sewer pipe were installed on Highway 19A, between Rockland Road and Rotary Beach Park.

Regional Director Jim Abram echoed the idea that in-person meetings were preferable and added that this would let directors and staff go on summer holidays.
