The City of Nanaimo is hosting an open house to provide information on Phase 1 of the Nanaimo Operation Centre project. Members of the public are invited to the Beban Park Social Centre, 2300 Bowen Road from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept 13.

The first phase of the project includes: replacing the existing fleet and maintenance facility, a truck wash and dump facility, and site service for future phases of the project; replacing storm water management facilities onsite and building a storm water retention pond in Beban Park at the corner of Dorman and Labieux Road; retrofitting the training tower located at Fire Station 2; building a paved trail along the Labieux Road side of Beban Park.
