James Bay Neighbourhood Association will host the first meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at 6:30 p.m. at James Bay New Horizons (234 Menzies St.), while a second meeting will take place at the Cook Street Village Activity Centre (380 Cook St.) Thursday, Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Construction of the Clover forcemain is anticipated to begin in spring 2018 and take approximately two years to complete. Construction on the Clover Point pump station is also slated to begin in early 2018 with a projected completion date around mid-2020.

The bike path – the creation of which would eliminate 60-plus parking spots along Dallas Road using the current design – is part of the project as well, running along the sewage pipeline route from Ogden Point to Clover Point.

The public is encouraged to visit before attending the meetings to get acquainted with the project’s history, as the CRD moves forward.
