Marina project gets funding approval

The Rumble Beach Marina Project has been given the nod for $140k from ICET

The Rumble Beach Marina Project in Port Alice landed a funding boost this week.

The project, which aims to build a 10-slip marina at the existing public boat ramp, received a $140,000 funding approval from the Island Coastal Economic Trust.

When the estimated $600,000 project is complete it will serve as a new short-term moorage option for the marine traffic in the area and an economic boon to the village of Port Alice.

“Currently, visiting boaters can’t moor their vessels on the waterfront, and can’t get to the local businesses who are eager to serve them,” said Acting Mayor Janice MacLeod. “The Rumble Beach Marina will put visitors right on our doorstep. This will strengthen our existing base, but more importantly it will create opportunities for local entrepreneurs as well as new investors.”

The funding approval was announced last Thursday by ICET chair Phil Kent.
