A new location for Cowichan Secondary School and an expanded Cowichan Vancouver Island University campus aren't the only changes that could be coming under the University Village plan.

You can get a closer look April 14 as North Cowichan and Duncan present the final draft of the proposed plan.

The University Village area includes Vancouver Island University, James Street, and Beverly Street. The plan will establish a vision for this area for the next 30 years. In conjunction with plan, officials are studying issues of traffic flow, safety and aesthetics along the Island Highway corridor from Boys Road to Beverly Street.

"The public input we have received to date has been really valuable in shaping the draft plan," Duncan Mayor Phil Kent said in a press release. "We hope that community members will continue to provide their thoughts, ideas and concerns."

This is the final open house for this project. Comments will be used to  refine the proposed plan before it is presented to both councils for adoption.

The open house runs from 4 to 7 p.m. in the gym at Alexander Elementary School.

Further information is available at North Cowichan's website under University Village Plan or here.
