The downtown re-vitalization  should proceed one block at a time, starting at the City Hall block and moving south till the project is done. To assist the merchants through these short term shutdowns, the  city should help educate the people of Penticton about supporting shops even with Main Street closures.

Shoppers must be allowed to use the alleys and back doors of each business and the city must use the same care and precision timing that they used on Martin Street.

Make it a reason to invite new customers to your shops and stores.
