I had the opportunity to be at the Parksville Community Convention Centre this weekend. It is a really nice facility with really dedicated staff working there. I truly hope that the City of Parksville DOES NOT close this facility - but continues to work with the Centre to promote it...continue to use it and support it! I think that it will be a facility that the city will need as we grow and flourish and closing will be short sighted.

we Are in the early stages of considering the addition of a rental suite in our home to allow my mother-in-law a place to live where she will be better connected to family for assistance with her daily living and to be closer to parksville’s Amenities (beach, shopping and community). She currently rents in Coombs but no longer drives so she’s feeling isolated. We have no planning or building experience so will look to hire a contractor to help us through the process of design, permits, construction etc. The short term plan would be to have my mother-in-law live with us for the duration of life. We would then have the chance to rent it out for income later. This got me thinking about an opportunity for the city to host an information session geared towards homeowners, to discuss the possibility/opportunity to add a rental suite to their existing property. There may be other home owners interested in adding a rental which would add some much needed rentals to help with the housing shortage in our community. I know there are many rules about what is permitted and to ensure safety of accommodation. I’d love to see a presentation hosted by the city to share more information!
