The Downtown Revitalization process should include consultation with the merchants/owners on Main Street as to the benefits that they see by making Main Street two lanes and restricting the speed to 30 kilometres per hour.

The city also needs to address their concerns. The goal of the revitalization needs to be economic enhancement.

The citizens of Penticton also need ample opportunity for input surrounding this project in order to prioritize the spending, design and scope. Process should always be consultation, information and then decision moving forward to action.
