Live Your Retirement Dreams in the Comox Valley, with a New Home at Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community

Posted on Jul 29, 2016

If golf or any type of outdoor adventure is part of your retirement plans, consider building your next home at Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community in the heart of the Comox Valley, recently named one of the top retirement destinations in Canada.

Moving to the Comox Valley means more for your real estate dollar, compared to most major Canadian cities. New single family homes in Crown Isle start in the mid-to-high $400,000 range. Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community is one of few places remaining where many can still afford to live a luxurious lifestyle in such a desirable neighborhood.

The master-planned community surrounds a championship 18-hole golf course, with a stunning resort centre at its heart. Walk from this community to grocery stores, restaurants, major retailers, and aquatic centre, North Island College, local high schools, and soon, the new Comox Valley hospital. Within minutes you can drive to beaches, marinas, a major airport (yqq), Mount Washington’s ski hills and more.

There are a number of subdivisions with lots for sale in Crown Isle. Several premier builders have reserved home lots and numerous new custom homes are now under construction.

Kinetic Construction Donates to Comox Valley Chapter of MADD

Posted on Jul 6, 2016

Kinetic Construction and its employees have donated $5,600 to the Comox Valley Chapter of MADD.

MADD’s Comox Valley chapter was started by Molly and her parents, Leslie Wells and Ralph Burton, after Molly was hit by a drunk driver while walking home. Ralph Burton is a longtime employee of Kinetic.

“Kinetic and its employees have been incredibly generous and supportive of our efforts to establish a MADD chapter on Vancouver Island,” said Leslie Wells, president of MADD Comox Valley. “We now officially have a chapter and are well into planning.”

“The story of Molly and the importance of what her mother Leslie has done in starting a chapter of MADD here in the Comox Valley cannot be overlooked,” said Al Wilson, Branch Manager of the Kinetic’s local office in the Comox Valley. “We have put this nonprofit society on the top of our list of local donations.”

This donation will be used to train new members, purchase signs for highways and marinas, advertise services for victims and create a presentation aimed at parents of graduates.

“I’m not sure how we would have managed without Kinetic’s help,” continued Wells. “We are so grateful.”

Kinetic is a community oriented company and takes great pride in giving back to the communities where its employees live and work. Kinetic is a gold sponsor of the Butterfly Ball at the Crown Isle Resort on June 18th, a fundraiser for Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island. Kinetic has donated over $125,000 to charity in the past 2 years, including $75,000 to Camosun College.
