Got some thoughts on how downtown Osoyoos could be improved? Here’s your chance to share them.
The Town of Osoyoos is hosting a Town Centre forum June 13 to allow community leaders, business owners and operators and Osoyoos residents to add their ideas on how the downtown core could better attract and serve residents and tourists.
“Downtowns are the heart of any community: a place to shop, dine at a restaurant, obtain services, attend cultural events, meet people, and for many, a place of employment,” the Town says in an online invitation.
“A vibrant and healthy downtown is especially important for Osoyoos’ continued success as a service and tourist centre, and for attracting new business and residential growth.”
The forum will be held at the Sonora Community Centre, starting at 6:45 p.m.
The goal of the forum is to jump-start the Town Centre Renewal Plan by holding a public meeting to address four specific development programs:
- Physical Improvements
- Business Development
- Promotional Activities
- Organization Building
Participants will take part in round-table discussions about the key opportunities and challenges facing the Osoyoos downtown.
