Feb 5, 2020 5:00 PM  Wood Buffalo Downtown Revitalization Advisory Committee Meeting

The Committee Members reviewed the suggested categories for revitalization from the Downtown Revitalization Public Engagement Summary and identified the Committee’s top priorities as beautification, placemaking, neighbourhood safety and being pedestrian friendly.

Carolyn Evancio noted that she is unable to attend the March 4, 2020 Committee meeting and suggested that a focus for the priorities should be walkability and livability to attract residents and visitors to the downtown.

Brad McMurdo, Director, Planning and Development, noted that a new Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) for the downtown is being drafted, which will provide an overarching guide for development but indicated that the ARP will not provide specifics on revitalization.


Renee Mouland exited the meeting at 6:35 p.m.
