Saahtlam Park Feedback - Closes Nov 3

Complete the Feedback Form before November 3

An opportunity to provide feedback on Saahtlam Park was presented on October 20 and is still available until November 3. Using input from the 2020 Concept Plan, this new Feedback Form allows input on the 2023 Saahtlam Park draft Detailed Plan.


While the 2020 Concept Plan provided a preliminary plan with a general overview of the proposed park design, this 2023 Detailed Plan will now provide a more comprehensive roadmap for the park project.


Completing the Feedback Form will help us:

  • Hear your ideas about the long-term vision for the park.
  • Review and confirm existing park conditions.
  • Understand community priorities and level of support for future park amenities and upgrades.


The Feedback Form can be accessed on the Town’s website or a physical copy is available at Town Hall, at 201-660 Primrose Street, until November 3, 2023.

Airport Consultation

The Town invites you to participate in its Public Consultation to help consider challenges and opportunities for the municipally owned and operated Qualicum Beach Airport.

To assist with this undertaking, the Town has retained Operations Economics Inc. – a team with extensive experience in master planning for small, medium, and large airports across Canada and overseas.

New Crosswalks at Waterfront

In keeping with a commitment to traffic safety on the waterfront, the Town has installed four new crosswalks. These crosswalks play a vital role in safely connecting the recently established parking areas south of the highway to the waterfront.


These parking areas are part of the Town's Waterfront Expansion project, designed not only to expand parking capacity but also to enhance the safety of pedestrians and cyclists in the area, a goal facilitated by the new crosswalks. Furthermore, “No Parking” signs have been positioned south of the highway outside of the new parking areas to optimize traffic flow.
