Do you want to change Highway 19A’s name?

City council wants the community’s help in deciding whether to change the name of Highway 19A and if so, what it should be called

City council wants the community’s help in deciding whether to change the name of Highway 19A and if so, what it should be called.

The city is considering changing the name of the section of Old Island Highway that runs through the city boundaries.

Council wants to know if people support the idea to change the name and is asking for new name suggestions from people who support the change.

People can indicate their preference for a name change and submit their name suggestions through an online form on the city’s website or they can mail in their suggestions to City Hall.

“We’re looking forward to hearing people’s suggestions for names that represent this unique roadway and create a distinct image for this part of Campbell River, names like Oceanview Road or Marine Drive,” says Mayor Charlie Cornfield.

Name suggestions must be submitted by May 25 and will be compiled and presented to council in June, when council will make the final decision on a possible name change for this route.

The electronic form will be available for use on the City’s website at under What’s New after May 11. There is an option on the form for people to indicate that they do not support the name change.

Mail in suggestions can be sent to: City of Campbell River, 301 St. Ann’s Road, Campbell River, B.C., V9W 4C7

All name suggestions will be entered in a random draw for prizes.
