At last, signs for The Commons!

Gabriola Commons

Tuesday, August 16 2016

Lost the Gabriola Commons? Never found the Commons? It seems a few Gabriolans and curious visitors are in the same boat, and have been for part of the 11 years since the Commons was established. 

A signage project is – finally - underway, but further funding is required to complete the full plan.

Large, effective signs are planned for North Road near each end of the 26 acre property lines, in addition to clear entry signs for the four entrances. The plan also includes directional signs for the many amenities and resources on the Commons, such as the Community Kitchen, meeting rooms in the house, timberframe building (Wednesday Market), Poetry Gabriola yurt, labyrinth, pond, various gardens, and so on. 

Half of the funding for this large project has been raised, but the second $2500 is outstanding. Generous donors have pledged $1250 if an equivalent amount can be matched by other interested members of the public. 

This donation pledge will be withdrawn September 10 if the matching $1250 cannot raised by the Gabriola community.

Can you help meet this challenge?

We’re already a third of the way there!

If you can help, no matter how small or large your donation, your pledged amount will be gratefully accepted and receipts provided. If you’d like more information, or to make a pledge, please e.mail or call Jinny at 250-247-8898.
