The Cowichan Lake Community
Forest Cooperative is interested in acquiring the proposed business
park at the old Youbou millsite, as well as managing the proposed
marina and boat ramp.
Pending rezoning approval, a spokesman for the owners of the property, Thomas Kreilein, said he’s interested in the idea.
Scheffer, chairman of the Forest Co-op, wrote to Kreilein saying he
believes it’s an excellent opportunity for the Forest Co-op. In a
telephone interview, Scheffer said this would come under the Forest
Co-op’s mandate to create jobs.
