A public information meeting will take place Thursday in Port Renfrew to discuss a temporary-use permit for a new marina.

The proposed permit will allow the construction and operation of a 60-slip commercial marina, providing moorage for commercial vessels and private pleasure craft, as well as offices, food services, retail sales, helicopter landing, boat trailer parking and boat storage within the designated marine and community residential zones.

The commercial marina, also known as the Pacific Gateway Marina, will also feature a  full-serve gas station, as well as accommodation for a 60-foot yacht.

The overall footprint of the marina is approximately 3.86 hectares, covering the waterfront lands north of Baird Road.

The public is invited to provide comment on the permit on Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Port Renfrew Community Centre, 6638 Deering Road, Port Renfrew.
