Colwood considers integrated medical centre for park and ride land
Colwood wants public feedback on a proposed integrated health and wellness centre that could be built over the park and ride at Ocean Boulevard.
Mayor Carol Hamilton says the park and ride is moving anyway, and they'll wait until BC Transit chooses a new location and a new park and ride is built before proceeding. "It's actually a left over 'taggy' bit of land that - when they created that intersection - was left over."
Hamilton says the proposal comes as the region faces a shortage of doctors, "this developer builds specific to medical office needs. So space, equipment, everything comes ready-made for a doctor to set up.”
A public open house is scheduled for 6 o'clock this coming Wednesday at Colwood city hall.
