B.C. Parks, Snuneymuxw First Nation and the City of Nanaimo want to hear residents’ views on a new business plan for Newcastle Island.
An open house on a new business plan to develop cultural opportunities on Newcastle Island provincial park will happen Saturday (April 18) at Maffeo Sutton Park.
According to a press release, a Collaborative Management Agreement in 2007 saw a commitment by the Snuneymuxw, City of Nanaimo and B.C. Parks to develop and roll out construction of cultural facilities on the island.
No details were provided on the new business plan for the park, but there has been previous talk about an interpretive and cultural centre.
The public can see concepts and ideas between 1 p.m and 4 p.m on April 18.
