Thank you, thank you, thank you!

To the Committee Members, project partners (City of Nanaimo, DNBIA, MOTI, NEDC), and to all of the community members and associations that participated in the TN Re-imagined process over the last year.
Although this concludes the current phase of work, we are looking forward to future steps to carry this vision forward.

Terminal Nicol…Re-imagined!

Over a year ago, at our MyStreet event, we asked you to imagine what Terminal and Nicol would look like in the future…

We have used your this input to develop a Draft Plan that we hope moves, inspires, and invites people to explore Nanaimo’s downtown.

We welcome you to review the Draft Plan at our final Terminal Nicol Re-imagined Public Event:

DATE: Saturday, October 29th
TIME: 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
LOCATION: Dish Restaurant 111 Terminal Ave.
(New downtown location at the corner of Campbell Street, kitty-corner to Turley’s Florist!)

Come on down and provide your feedback on the Draft Plan for the future of Terminal and Nicol and downtown Nanaimo!


March 1st: Additional Event – Owners & Stakeholders

March 1st: Additional Event – Owners & Stakeholders

Did you miss our last Open House at the Acme Building?

Are you a business or property owner along Terminal Nicol?

We want your input!

During engagement sessions and stakeholder meetings to date we received strong feedback; however, the business and property owners along Terminal Nicol could have been better represented. Business and property owners are critical stakeholders in this process, and so we have added an additional event and opportunity to hear your thoughts and opinions. We are hosting a meeting presentation and Q&A session to share what we have learned to date. Can’t attend in person? We are going to stream the presentation live, and follow-up with a link for online viewing afterwards.

This meeting will be the final opportunity to comment on preliminary concepts prior to the next stage of development!

This event is open to all members of the public.

Check back at for updated materials and links in preparation for this event.

Event information:

  • Date: March 1, 2016
  • Time: 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
  • Location: Shaw Auditorium, Vancouver Island Conference Centre
  • Format: Brief Presentation, followed by Q&A and Discussion
  • Can’t attend in person?: Live presentation streaming and video recording
