Qualicum Heights Homeowners Group voices concerns with College Inn development plan
Planned re-development of the site of the old College Inn has stumbled along now for over a decade. A current proposal by Paul Jahn, owner of Langley-based Monaco Estates Inc., to build an additional three large multi-unit buildings on the site is scheduled for its Public Hearing at a Special Council Meeting on January 27, 2021.
Over 40 of the neighbouring property owners are expressing serious concerns with the current plan as expressed in this letter delivered to Town Council on Friday, January 22.
Neighbourhood input has been collected and summarized using this very effective questionnaire and summary of findings, which were both provided to Town Council.
Kiwanis Housing Society hints at what they are planning to build
On January 21, 2021, the Qualicum-Parksville Kiwanis Housing Society issued a brief PR bulletin that gives a hint of what they are planning to build at Railway Street and Village Way, as proposed to BC Housing earlier in January.

Community Park’s once-admired chip trails now muddy bogs
Qualicum Beach’s chip trails used to be a point of pride, drawing many people to get exercise that they might otherwise not.
Some parts of our trail system are a slippery, mucky mess. Why have they been allowed to deteriorate so badly?
With all the trees being cut down around town, you’d think there wouldn’t be a shortage of chips… Or is this an effort to justify paving paradise, including our chip trails?
