BIZ calls for ideas on what downtown needs

  • Print

The Downtown BIZ wants to hear from you about what’s right -- and wrong -- with Winnipeg’s downtown.

The umbrella organization has set up a new initiative called Downtown Living Room to solicit ideas as the group begins to put together a new 3-year strategic plan that will run 2014-16.

"With so many positive developments and initiatives taking place, the Downtown Living Room aims to provide people with an outlet to express their ideas, suggestions, and vision for their downtown," Stefano Grande, Downtown BIZ executive director, said in a release. "Change happens when people participate and take action."

The concept will see the group host seminars and presentations between now and June on a range of topics affecting the downtown, from parking to the need for a grocery store to the efforts of the University of Winnipeg to revitalize the area.
