COURTENAY, B.C. — The Comox Valley Record reports that a group of citizens has stepped up in an effort to help resolve the battle between the City of Courtenay and the owners of Maple Pool Campground.
The group — consisting of engineers, lawyers, contractors and other business people — has spoken with the city about options for adding fill and/or raising the site to a reasonable flood level, writes the Comox Valley Record.
The Comox Valley Record says Maple Pool flooded in 2009 and 2010. The following year, the city initiated legal action against campground owners Dali and Jin Lin.
“But if they’re talking a 500-year flood level, you’d have to raise the entire Comox Valley,” said group member Mike Hamilton. “We’re going to put something on paper and send it to the city, that way it will be entered into the court records.”
