BC Ferries is looking for customer and community input on the future of its Horseshoe Bay terminal.
The current Horseshoe Bay terminal is at capacity and some of its infrastructure will soon need to be replaced, noted a BC Ferries press release.
“Redeveloping the terminal will support growth in the region, and improve the service to meet the emerging and future transportation needs of our customers,” stated Mark Wilson, BC Ferries’ vice-president, strategy and community engagement, in the release.
From now until fall 2018 people can provide feedback that could help the company develop a new vision for the terminal.
This feedback process is the first of three phases of development for the terminal, followed by a detailed design process that will take shape during the next two to four years.
Construction is expected to begin immediately after that, the release noted.
It also stated that redevelopment of the Horseshoe Bay terminal is intended to create a better experience for customers while supporting regional growth.
Diana Mumford, chair of the Southern Sunshine Coast Ferry Advisory Committee, stated in the release that the input and feedback process was appreciated.
“This visioning process will ensure any future redevelopment takes into consideration the voices and needs of the communities the terminal serves,” she noted.
