City applying for UBCM funding to study effect of sea level rise

Campbell River is looking to plan ahead for rising sea levels.

The city is applying to the Union of B C Municipalities’ Emergency Preparedness Fund. It’s asking for $150,000.

If the application is successful the city says the money will be spent on studies to figure out the potential impact of a rise in the sea level on the Willow Point and Painter-Barclay neighbourhoods.

The city expects to have an answer to its application by early January. It’s also applying for additional funding for studies on the downtown and estuary areas.
