DPA members asked to consider future of downtown

What members want the future to look like, and current developing projects will be topics at the AGM

The Downtown Penticton Association (DPA) wants to know what its members would like the downtown to look like in the future.

The topic is the focus of the association’s annual general meeting on March 18.

“Important city initiatives are underway that will impact downtown for years. As a group of major downtown stakeholders, the DPA wants to be well-informed about our memberships’ interests and be able to speak with authority about the business community’s future vision when city initiatives are being proposed,” said Lynn Allin, the DPA executive director.

Among the projects is the lake-to-lake bicycle route, which the city is currently asking for input on. The city has narrowed down the options where the route will go, but wants residents and businesses in the area to share their thoughts before making a final decision.

The city will be presenting information about the project at the DPA’s meeting in order to educate members on the developing project.

All DPA members are invited to attend the AGM at Cannery Brewing. Sign-in for the meeting is from 5 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. before the meeting is called to order at 5:40 p.m. Members are asked to pre-register by Friday, March 13.

Members may pre-register with a phone call to the DPA office, send an email to info@downtownpenticton.org or complete the online form on their website: www.downtownpenticton.org. Anyone unsure if they’re a DPA member can call 250-493-8540 during regular business hours.
