Nanaimo News Bulletin Thursday, May 31, 2012

Port looks a decade ahead Nanaimo Port Authority is embarking on a decadelong voyage to diversify and attract more business to the city. Bernie Dumas, NPA president and CEO, said the organization has key assets that make it an appealing destination for businesses, especially those looking to connect to markets in the Pacifi fic Rim. The port created the Path 2025 strategic plan to address the need for infrastructure upgrades and modernization over the next decade. For several years, the port authority focused its efforts on the creation and construction of the cruise ship terminal. With that project’s completion, it is setting its sights on other opportunities to expand, while continuing to market the terminal to attract

Conference eyes transit Public transportation took a front seat at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre recently at B.C. Transit’s annual conference. More than 160 delegates from 81 transit systems around the province attended workshops on fl fleet management, increasing revenue streams, labour relations and safety. Joe Stanhope, Regional District of Nanaimo chairman, said the four-day conference was an ideal time to discuss issues and concerns, especially since the government announced an independent review of B.C. Transit.

Transportation under microscope There’s a good chance your movement through the city was tracked this spring, as increasingly complex transportation issues prompted Nanaimo to embark on its fi first transportation master plan. As the city’s population moves toward 100,000 people and roadways become more congested, the city’s transportation department wants to ensure that objectives of

Bowen Road upgrades hit final stretch vessels, said Dumas. “For the port authority to thrive into the next decade, we need to diversify,” he said. “Predominantly the economy is doing quite well and a lot of companies are looking at developing a distribution centre for products to ship to Asia.” Space in Vancouver is at a premium and some businesses might be looking to relocate to Nanaimo to take advantage of unused portions of the port authority’s Duke Point industrial terminal area or assembly wharf area. A key component many businesses are looking at is deep water to accommodate larger shipping vessels, which is available at the Duke Point industrial terminal, said Dumas. The 28-hectare terminal has 22 hectares of leasable storage area, a 40-tonne container crane and a 100-metre barge ramp. The 15-hectare assembly wharf is home to the port’s cruise ship terminal, administration offi fices and three deep sea berths. Dumas is optimistic that over the next few years, new businesses will be looking to relocate to Nanaimo. As part of the expansion, the port authority also hopes to develop a downtown waterfront transportation hub that incorporates ferries, buses, float fl planes, trains and cruise ships that will connect to a community-wide transportation network. It’s also eyeing upgrades to the Boat Basin. The port authority is redesigning its website at www.npa.ca, but people can get more information on the strategy by clicking on the Path 2025 icon.

planNanaimo are met and that people who live here or visit are able to move as effi fficiently as possible. “It’s about sustainability, and that means livability – how easy it is to get to work, where you shop or where you want to play,” said Susan Clift, the city’s director of engineering and public works. “It also means what kind of impact people’s transportation choices are having on the environment, as well as what is the ability to pay, as a community, for changes [we] might want to seek in transportation infrastructure.”

Construction on Bowen Road and the Quarterway Bridge is in the fi final stages after a winter hiatus. The $11.1-million project began in March 2011 and is expected to wrap up at the end of October. The 12-metre bridge, the trigger for the entire project, is being replaced with an 18-metre span that will sit more than a metre higher than its predecessor to accommodate for a 200-year flood fl plain over the Millstone River. An 800-metre stretch of Bowen Road is being converted to four lanes to better handle an estimated 16,000 vehicles that travel through the corridor daily, on par with pre-Nanaimo Parkway traffic ffi congestion. Much of the utility work, including sewer and storm drain improvements, relocating hydro, cable and phone components has already been completed at a cost of $2.2 million. It’s the city’s most expensive and expansive road works project to date, and will provide better access for motorists and pedestrians travelling to or from downtown. Jan Morgard, project manager, said the meat of the work is replacement of the 65-year-old Quarterway Bridge, which is scheduled for mid-summer. Paving kicked off ff earlier this spring, with bridge demolition from May to June. Sidewalks and streetlights will be installed in September with fi final paving of the new road to end the project by Oct. 31.

As the city follows its offi fficial community plan to densify corridors, alternatives to the single occupancy automobile such as cycling, walking or taking transit could become increasingly popular choices. By collecting data now, city staff ff will have the information needed to help define fi how Nanaimo moves, looks and grows over the next five, 10 and 20 years, said Gordon Foy, transportation engineer for the city. The first fi data collection took place from mid-march to May, with various other surveys planned.

ER nearing completion

T

he massive fir beams in the entranceway are in place and painters are hard at work inside the new, state-of-the-art emergency department at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. In about 18 months, the $36.9-million project went from a hole in the ground to a two-storey building that now resembles the artists’ renderings. Construction is on track for an August or September opening, said Jim Morris, project manager with the Vancouver Island Health Authority. “It’s going to be an exciting place,” he said. “It’s bright, it’s open, it’s got state-of-the-art equipment.” The $36.9-million project will triple the size of the department, which was designed to serve 15,000 patients per year but now serves about 54,000. The new facility boosts the number of treatment rooms from 24 to 39 and also includes a psychiatric emergency services unit, which replaces the current department’s single room reserved for mental health patients, and a six-bed psychiatric intensive care unit. The hospital does not currently have a psychiatric intensive care unit and these types of patients are currently sent to Courtenay or Victoria, said Morris. Six internal courtyards stretch the length of both top and bottom floors, fl including three daylight wells in the stretcher/bay area, flooding fl the building with plenty of natural light – a feature that Morris said is proven to reduce medication errors, staff sick time and stress. “It creates a more healing environment,” said Morris. “The big difference is that these daylight wells are right in the centre of the treatment spaces.”

City drivers energized by electric cars Nanaimo drivers are beginning to warm up to the idea of electric vehicles, so the city is staying ahead of the curve by introducing public charging stations. Electric vehicle owners can plug-in free of charge (as it were) at three city-owned locations – two charging stalls will be available at the Beban Park Complex, one at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre parkade and

Having individual treatment rooms throughout instead of a curtain separating patients will allow for more privacy, he added, and each room will have a glass door that turns opaque at the push of a button and is easy to clean. Architects spent a great deal of time consulting with emergency staff when designing the facility and layout of the new ER is superior to the existing department, said Morris. The ambulance entrance is separated from patient entrance by fencing, and the trauma section backs onto the ambulance entrance. There are two separate waiting areas for patients who do not need to lie on a stretcher and patients will be placed in each based on the severity of their situations. The new facility is designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certification. fi ABOVE: Jim Morris, senior project manager with the

another a short distance away at the Port parkade. It cost the city $13,500 to install the two outlets at Beban Park and $8,400 total at VICC and Port parkades. The city has three Nissan Leaf electric vehicles and one converted electric Ford Ranger as part of its fl fleet, powered by two charging stations near city hall on Franklyn Street and two more at the public works yard on Labieux Road. Bruce Labell, Nanaimo’s fl fleet manager, said over time the city estimates about $25,000 in savings per EV over a 10-year

period compared to traditional vehicles while helping to achieve city goals to reduce its carbon footprint. For personal use, the average EV costs an estimated $300 annually to keep charged. Car buyers were given additional incentive to consider electric cars late last year. Beginning Dec. 1 the Ministry of Environment, LiveSmart B.C. and New Car Dealers Association of B.C. introduced the $7.5 million Clean Energy Vehicle incentive program. Clean energy vehicles include electric, fuel cell, plug-in hybrid or compressed natural gas cars or light trucks.

Mill creates clean power for houses Thousands of homes will be powered using clean energy produced at Nanaimo’s Harmac pulp mill. B.C. Hydro signed a 15-year agreement with the mill to buy green energy from a new 25-megawatt turbogeneration unit that will be installed at Harmac. “This is a big thing for our company,” said Levi Sampson, Nanaimo Forest Products president. “It’s another very good revenue stream. It really allows us to ride out the lows in the market.” The turbine will produce enough energy to power 17,000 homes annually and the company is investing $45 million to build the unit, which is expected to create 85 full-time jobs in construction, engineering and technical work. Ryan Prontack, Harmac’s engineering superintendent, said a green energy project was a goal for the mill’s employees, who partially own the mill, since it reopened in 2008. The mill already has one turbine, installed in the 1960s, that generates 30 megawatts of power, said Prontack. The existing turbine enabled Harmac to internally produce three-quarters of its energy needs and with the new turbine, all of the mill’s needs will be me. The remaining 15 megawatts will be sent on to B.C. Hydro’s grid. The turbine create energy using steam produced from hog fuel burned in the power boiler. To create the extra energy for the power grid, Harmac will burn about 40 per cent more hog fuel, but the fuel, which is basically bark, is considered carbon neutral. And as part of the agreement with Hydro, Harmac committed to implementing various energy-efficiency projects that will result in 11 gigawatt hours per year of electricity savings. The agreement is under B.C. Hydro’s Integrated Power Offer, which was developed to complement Natural Resources Canada’s Pulp and Paper Green Transformation program, through which Harmac received $27 million to make the mill more efficient and environmentally friendly.

One-millionth flyer eyed With passenger numbers continuing to take off, ff Nanaimo Airport is poised to welcome its one-millionth customer since a $26.6 million expansion project began six years ago. More than 913,000 people travelled through the airport’s terminal between 2006 and 2011 and the push is on to reach the million mark. “Over the last two years we have seen a 13-per cent growth in passenger numbers and last August was our busiest month ever with 18,574 people coming through,” said Mike Hooper, airport CEO. “In 2012 we are issuing a challenge to residents to use it and they will come. Carriers look at the marketplace and passenger numbers, so the more we use our local airport, the more interest carriers have.” The two-phase airport expansion included extending the runway, an instrument landing system, high intensity runway and lead-in lights, expanding the terminal and new passenger screening and baggage

handling systems. Hooper said the upgrades are been a big part in the increase of passengers. “In 2011, we were 99-per cent reliable during weather issues,” he said. “That, and being in the middle of the biggest population centre on the Island north of Victoria, means people are choosing Nanaimo Airport.” The one-millionth customer is expected this summer and celebrations will be held throughout the year, culminating with the targeted month and day. “It will be diffi fficult to target exactly who is the one millionth customer, so we’ll be handing out prizes to everyone on the aircraft carrying that one millionth passenger,” said Hooper. The airport now has the infrastructure to handle jets capable of non-stop fl flights to Hawaii, Mexico and Toronto and Hooper said the next step is to improve the parking situation.

Rail service to see revival on the Island Passenger rail service on Vancouver Island will be revived after the federal government committed to its portion of the $15 million needed to repair the E&N Rail line. The Island Corridor Foundation, owner of the tracks, was waiting months for word that $7.5 million in provincial funding, announced last June, would be matched by Ottawa. Now that the money has arrived, people could be using the passenger rail service as early as spring 2013, after more than 104,000 rail ties and ballast are repaired along the 234 kilometres of track between Courtenay and Victoria. The ties alone will cost about $12.5 million to replace, and an additional $500,000 was already spent on a bridge and trestle study,

the results of which are expected to be made public next week. Renovated, smoother cars with amenities like bike and ski storage will be supplied by VIA Rail and an increase in freight investment is expected to go along with track improvements through Southern Rail, the track’s operator. A new schedule will result in an early morning southbound train from Nanaimo to Victoria to encourage commuting and tourism. Bruce and the ICF board of directors received criticism from some groups for not asking for the full $100-plus million originally estimated to renovate the line more substantially. “We’ve already got so many other pieces of this plan ready to go, this new funding allows us to push those green buttons and start some serious approaches without always having some doubt about funding in the back of our minds,” said Graham Bruce, the foundation’s CEO.

Nanaimo gets big-game hockey

I

f Nanaimo comes down with a case of playoff fever next spring, well, that can only be a good thing. The Harbour City will host its biggest hockey tournament in 15 years when the Nanaimo Clippers and four other junior A teams take the ice for the 2013 Western Canada Cup. “The hockey fans in the mid-Island area are in for a treat next spring,” said Graham Calder, chairman of the tournament’s organizing committee. It’s the first-ever Western Canada Cup, as the Canadian Junior Hockey League is changing its playoff format for next season. The B.C. Hockey League champions used to take on the Alberta champs for the right to advance to nationals, but now those teams, plus representatives from Saskatchewan and Manitoba and the host Clippers are all in the mix for one big 10-day showdown. Calder recently travelled to Humboldt, Sask. to study the 2012 national junior A hockey championships there, and it made him even more excited about what’s in store for Nanaimo. “The town of Humboldt really got behind its team and behind the tournament itself,” he said. “Hardly a store you went by or went into didn’t have some acknowledgement of the fact that there was an event of this magnitude going on in the city.” He said businesses there snapped up 600 tournament ticket packages. “And they had great corporate support in other ways; they had major sponsors step up to the table,” Calder said. “And that’s where we’re at right now in terms of our planning. We’ve been out meeting with potential partners.” The Clippers have sold more than 100 ticket packages for the WCC so far, and their target is somewhere in the 500-750 range. “I guess my blue-sky objective would be 1,000 tournament packages sold,” Calder said. “That

would put us on reasonably sound financial footing, coupled with the support of the partners.” Whether they have their tickets in hand already, hockey fans will be coming to Nanaimo for those 10 days. At the 2010 nationals in Dauphin, Man., for example, 2,500 visitors attended games, booking 2,250 hotel rooms and spending upwards of $1 million on accommodations, game tickets, food and drinks.

Jr. B Buccaneers invading ice centre The Nanaimo Buccaneers won’t win every game, but they plan to take their unfair share of them, they say. The city’s new junior B hockey team swashbuckled into Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League in time for the 2012-13 season. “It’ll be great,” said Brenda Levesque, who owns the team along with her husband Phil. “Our first goal is to fill the rink on opening

Calder was impressed with Humboldt’s nightly entertainment during its tournament, and he has been meeting with the City of Nanaimo to book venues for similar social gatherings. “We’re hoping that not only the business community but the citizens, the hockey fans of Nanaimo will get behind this event and support it by their presence at not only hockey games but some of these other events,” he said. As for the main event, the hockey; it will be some of the best ever played in Nanaimo. Calder said the atmosphere in Humboldt’s 1,900-seat arena was incredible for the host Broncos’ games. A capacity crowd of 3,000 in Frank Crane Arena could be louder still. Kelly Hrudey, part owner of the Clippers, said all the top junior A teams from Western Canada, playing for their playoff lives, will make for intense hockey. “I think it’s going to attract so many people from around the Island, and they are going to be blown away by the hockey they are going to see,” he said.

night and the rest will come from that. If we provide good entertainment, they’ll come back and that’s what we’re looking to do.” The Levesques, who formerly owned the Kerry Park Islanders of the VIJHL, have been working for more than a year to bring junior B hockey to their hometown of Nanaimo. The Nanaimo Buccaneers will play their home games Thursday nights at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The team will play in the VIJHL’s North Division along with the Oceanside Generals, Comox Valley Glacier Kings and Campbell River Storm.

Construction crews optimistic There’s reason for quiet optimism in the central Island area, despite lingering effects of economic downturn. That’s the message heard at the Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Central Vancouver Island’s construction industry forum earlier this year. From the debt crisis in Europe and trade with China, to interest rates and investment opportunities in Nanaimo, speakers talked of a stable B.C. economy with slow growth in a number of sectors expected in 2012. Toby Seward, city director of development, said there are people who want to invest here. “2011 was a bit of a tough year, but it looks like 2012 is going to be a steady year,” he said. “We review the stats, review what’s going forward and the signs are looking good in our one- to fi five-year forecast.” Bill Corsan, city manager of real estate, said investment opportunities are being driven by low interest rates, flattened fl land values, low vacancy rates and lack of rental products. Travis Archibald, Vancouver Island market analyst with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, said housing starts in Nanaimo fell in 2011, but remain relatively

stable and a slight increase is forecast this year. “We also saw roughly 1,500 MLS transactions in 2011 and expect a slight increase to that in 2012, but nowhere near past levels,” he said. “Supply is relatively stable and there should be a bit of an increase in demand this year, but it is still a buyer’s market.” Mark Lovick of RBC said Vancouver Island seems to be fi filtered from the sweeping economic challenges the rest of the world faces and continued low interest rates are good news. “We don’t see the huge swings up or down,” he said. “On the Island, we’ve had virtually the same sales activity for the last four years.” Doug Wittal, CHBA provincial president, detects a sense of optimism among homebuilders in the central Island and likes what he sees in terms of people stepping outside the box. “We drive the market, we drive the economy and if you’re not willing to change your product and get into the new world, you’re not going to have a market and you’re not going to be working,” he said. Wittal pointed to the Greenrock industrial park between Bowen and Boxwood roads and the Village at Summerhill townhouse project on Dufferin Crescent as two examples.

Groups making gardens available Accessing land can be a challenge for people in cities who want to grow their own food. But Nanaimo Foodshare and organizations like the Young Professionals of Nanaimo are trying to change that by providing access to land and growing opportunities in the community. Foodshare is partnering with four schools, John Barsby, Park Avenue, Fairview and Georgia Avenue, to teach students about horticulture, healthy eating, food security and

more. It also has more schools looking to take part in the program. Anna Dodds, Nanaimo Foodshare school garden coordinator, said there is increasing awareness of farmers’ markets and urban agriculture as more people become interested in issues such as food security and sustainability. The YPN also saw an untapped resource in idle gas station sites. The organization created two community gardens, one in the north and another in the south end of Nanaimo, by reclaiming the vacant properties. Members built raised beds, separating and protecting the growing soil from the contaminated soil on the properties.

Park gets upgrades Maffeo Sutton Park, the city’s most popular events location, is getting more improvements. The first upgrade is $30,000 in renovations to the park’s washrooms, which includes the installation of floor and wall tiles, new concrete countertops and sinks, new toilets and urinals, new partitions and doors, accessible grab bars and improved heating and ventilation systems. “It didn’t make sense to spend all of that money on the Spirit Square, then have the washrooms in the poor condition they’re in,” said Ian Blackwood, the city’s manager of facilities maintenance and construction. “We think any money invested in the washroom facility right now is money well spent.” The money comes from capital funds put aside by the city for a new park-planning process. When council took back a portion of land at Maffeo Sutton Park originally intended to be given to Millenium Suro for a condo development – part of the failed deal for a conference centre hotel – it had to revise its park plan to include that land. That new plan could include an entirely new washroom facility at Maffeo Sutton Park, which is why everything but the new fl floor tiles can be removed and installed elsewhere. The second improvement includes lowering the blue Spirit Square covering by 1.4 metres and windshields to the side of the structure. Trucks will still be able to pass under the cover-

RDN working on agricultural plan Agriculture was an important economic contributor to the region’s economy for the last 200 years, but farmers are facing challenges seriously affecting ff food production. Pressure to develop property in the Agricultural Land Reserve, labour shortages, rising transportation costs, climate change and more are issues area food producers are tackling. Concerns about food sustainability and security were brought to the attention of the Regional District of Nanaimo and in 2010, the

ing, but the lower top and retractable shields will improve protection from the elements, ultimately providing more options for performances and special events. The cost is estimated at $60,000. The Spirit Square renovation is expected to be completed by June. The city received a $500,000 provincial grant in 2008 to create the Spirit Square.

RDN board directed staff ff to go after funding to help develop and Agricultural Area Plan. The draft plan outlines seven main goals: protecting and enhancing the agricultural land base, strengthening the local agriculture and aquaculture economy, improving training, skills and labour opportunities, improving opportunities for on-farm water resource management, addressing environmental sustainability, wildlife and climate challenges, promoting agriculture and aquaculture through education and celebration and supporting agriculture and aquaculture in land use regulations and policies. These goals are broken down into smaller actions and given priority levels.

Cyclists push to preserve mountain bike trails in city The Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club agreed earlier this year to pursue formal land use agreements with private land owners in an eff ffort preserve riding terrain and improve trail access for local trails. Mark Perdue, club spokesman, said the mountain bike community rallied for a common goal that could put Nanaimo on the map as a mountain bike destination. “There was a lot of enthusiasm that came out of the meeting from both inside the club and from outside the club,” said Purdue. “The change in focus from the club now is going from a group that just organizes rides to one that has a clear mandate for organizing this sport.” Until now, private forest companies, which own an estimated 75 per cent of the land mountain bike trails are built on in Nanaimo, have tolerated access by mountain bikers and other user groups in absence of liability insurance. Morgan Kennah, spokeswoman for Island Timberlands, said the company is willing to meet with the club to discuss the future of trail access, building and maintenance. By purchasing a non-exclusive licence at an annual cost of $500, Kennah said the club can formally access Island Timberland property. Nanaimo is home to some of the best riding in the Pacifi fic Northwest, according to the Nanaimo club, and could become a destination like Whistler, Squamish and Cumberland, all of which have benefitted fi economically from the global explosion in the sport’s popularity. In recent years, Nanaimo’s trails have been praised by B.C. Bike Race participants and organizers, one of the world’s most popular mountain bike races, and featured in international mountain bike publications. “We’re really excited about what’s ahead and who’s involved and it’s really going to help the cause,” Perdue said. The club intends to hold discussions with the city, land owners and other stakeholders to discuss the role mountain biking might play in future economic development.

ADVERTORIAL

Downtown Nanaimo has a lot to be proud of Over the last several decades, the visual aesthetics, basic infrastructure and general ambiance of Downtown Nanaimo can best be described as a creative work in progress; the result of a collective vision of our community’s hopes, dreams and aspirations for the heart of our city. This vision has manifested itself into refurbished heritage buildings, new construction, altered streetscapes and improved public spaces. Business Improvement Area (BIA) legislation in British Columbia is in its 24th year and Nanaimo, through the vision of the Nanaimo City Centre Association (NCCA), was the first city in B.C. to establish a BIA in 1988. Today, after many changes and challenges and because of the hard work of organizations such as the NCCA, the Old City Quarter Association (OCQA) and the

Downtown Nanaimo Partnership Society (DNPS), the Downtown Nanaimo BIA exists today. Thanks to all of the hard working crusaders championing a revitalized and prosperous downtown, there have

been countless improvements to what are generally considered eclectic business areas and residential neighborhoods. From the recently renovated, 157-year-old Nanaimo Bastion to

the very modern Vancouver Island Conference Centre, Downtown Nanaimo covers the gamut from historical icons to new, state of the art facilities and everything in between. There have been many exciting changes and many more are on the horizon. Working in collaboration with our community partners, the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association (DNBIA) is now working on projects that will further improve the visual aesthetic downtown (providing façade grants, Terminal/ Nicol Street Redevelopment, and tree lights) to creating a downtown that is accessible and convenient to all visitors (wayfinding signage, bike parking, and family friendly events). The DNBIA is proud of where we’ve come from and the work done before us, and we are looking forward to the challenges ahead.
