Community Cuts for Comox Valley

The Comox Valley Broombusters are planning community cuts at a variety of sites in the valley – in Courtenay, Cumberland, Comox and the CVRD. This website will be updated regularly or contact Bev at bevagur@yahoo.ca and you will receive regular emails of our plans for broombusting.  Most cuts are 9:30-12:00.

 

Scheduled Cuts for 2018

All of our community cuts run from 9:30 – noon but you don’t need to be there right at the start or stay until the end.

 May 14 – May 18, Monday  Friday, 9:30 – noon: Northeast Woods in Comox. Park in the parking lot at the end of Torrence Rd. past the Public Works Building. Walk down the access road behind the yellow gate and look for us somewhere in the big meadow. We’ll be cutting small broom that has sprouted in the past 3 years since we cleared the meadow of huge broom trees. This is a lovely quiet place to cut!

May 19, Saturday, and May 21, Monday, 9:30 – noon. Roundabout at Pritchard and Knight Roads (near the airport) There is parking at Woodland Flooring, either in front of the building or at the side closest to the airport. We cleared all of the broom in front of Woodland Flooring two weeks ago and plan to get the broom cleared the remainder of the way around the roundabout.

 

May 22 – 25, Tuesday  Saturday, 9:30 – noon. Ryan Road. We’ll resume where we left off cutting small broom that has sprouted in the last year or two. We’re working our way west from Anderton towards Crown Isle on the north side of Ryan Road. Look for our signs and park carefully along the roadside.

 

May 28 – June 1, MondayFriday, 9:30 – noon. Ryan Road, finishing off the broom that is on the north side close to the car dealerships (if we don’t get that completed tomorrow). We’ll then start on the south side of the road, beginning at Crown Isle Drive and working towards Anderton. Look for the signs and the cars parked at the side of the road.

The road isn’t very wide but there is some parking close to Guthrie and more by the wildlife viewing area. Park where there isn’t broom so that we’ll have space to cut and stack.
