The Canadian Coast Guard will be developing a new Logistics Depot in Port Hardy.
According to a Building Links news release, Port Hardy council has approved a Development Permit Variance for the development of the depot on Jensen Cove Road.
The release also states that the development will include a “10,800 square foot building with warehouse storage for environmental response, fleet maintenance equipment etc. The building will also include administrative workstations, meeting room, classroom/training space, Incident Command Post capable (with accommodations, kitchen, laundry), a mechanics workshop for small boat maintenance and an electronics workshop and rooftop armature for development and testing of electronic equipment.”
Port Hardy council has also approved a waterfront walkway for the depot.
“This development requires security and the development of a waterfront walkway will reduce the ability to provide adequate security to the facilities both on land and water,” states the release.
