North Shore Economic Development Revitalization Tour
The North Shore Economic Development Tour will engage participants in an area of Kamloops that is underdoing significant and rapid redevelopment and economic recovery. Traditionally this area has been both the lowest economic performing as well as economic demographic in the city. The development in the area has been driven by visionary pioneers and developers with a sense of potential. Throughout the process, the NSBIA has also been the driver of the community vision, which has resulted in a new neighbourhood plan, a 1.25 million dollar beautification fund, and the first strong steps to creating a new and revitalized community. This tour will be on foot, once bus drop off has occurred. Attendees should wear suitable walking shoes.
Tuesday, 1:10 - 2:55 p.m.
