A new laundromat is coming to town and it’ll be part of the new-look Peters Centre, next to the Gas N’ Go.

“It’s been, I don’t know how many years since we’ve had one,” said resident Mary Masters in a phone call to the Gazette. “It’ll be a great addition to the town.”

Masters said she asked moving crews what they were up to when she saw them unloading the new machines.

Lake Cowichan Mayor Bob Day agreed the town will benefit, adding he believed the project belongs to Gas N’ Go owner Wayne Procter.

“That centre has become a busy hub since the new investor has taken over,” Day noted. “New investment and modern development is attracting a younger generation to live here and it takes your families to make us truly sustainability.

Not only will the facility be used by the seasonal tourists, Day agreed, but with “those marginally housed without major appliances” too, he said.

“A balance of housing options, free enterprising, good services and great planning makes a sustainable community,” he said.
