The Municipality thanks residents and volunteer community ambassadors that have took part in the 11 public engagement sessions to date in addition to the over 100 face-to-face meetings that have taken place with stakeholders, community groups and individuals. Over 1,000 surveys have been completed by engagement participants.

 

As public engagement on downtown revitalization continues, the community is advised of two Request for Proposals (RFPs) currently open through rmwb.ca/procurement.

 

The first RFP is for an updated downtown area redevelopment plan, which will be guided by information gathered from residents, stakeholders and community groups during ongoing downtown revitalization engagement efforts.

 

The other is the Shell Place Feasibility Study RFP. This RFP follows a Council motion on Mar. 26, 2019 that requests Administration initiate a feasibility study to change the Shell Place stadium field and bleachers to an all-weather indoor structure and to explore other options for an alternative multi-purposed facility within the downtown core as part of the downtown revitalization initiative.
