Martin Crilly, Chair of the Kye Bay Ratepayers Association, writes: I propose that we request the Town of Comox to install and maintain a portable washroom, with a screen, at the parking lot at the west end of Windslow Road. There is already a public washroom at Elks Park, which is owned and very well maintained by the Town. But this is quite far away for people parking at the west end of Kye Bay. Evidently many people use the woods. Personally I think a portable public toilet, suitably sited and screened, would be a great amenity for Kye Bay.
Please comment and let everyone know whether you support (or not) installation of a portable public toilet at the west end of Kye Bay.
The Kye Bay slough. Ground zero for the breeding ground of the aggressive swamp mosquito that plagued us last year.
Today, April 7th, you will see earth-moving begin at the “slough” in front of Windslow Road. The authorities have identified the slough as a prime breeding habitat for the mosquitoes that have pestered many of us for the last couple of summers.
The slough has been drained and topped up with sand. And so far it looks like the countermeasures have been effective. Thank you Kathy for your amazing work to get the support and action of Comox and your neighbours in this matter.

Visitors to Kye Bay will be glad to know that the washrooms by the park are open to the public all year. At this time of year they’ll open at 7 am and close at 5 pm. Thanks to the Town of Comox and Al Fraser, who is responsible for Comox Parks.
