Have your say on downtown revitalization in our community

(Fort McMurray, AB – June 20, 2019) – The Municipality continues to engage with the community on downtown revitalization and is welcoming residents to a series of public engagement opportunities and to fill out a survey at rmwb.ca/downtown to share their vision for downtown. 

Residents are invited to attend drop-in sessions on the following dates and times. At the sessions, municipal representatives and volunteer community ambassadors will be there to listen to ideas, gather feedback, share information and answer questions.

Wednesday, June 26, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Fort McMurray Urban Market, Jubilee Plaza)

Thursday, June 27, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Suncor Community Leisure Centre main concourse, MacDonald Island Park)

This next step follows a public presentation of the Downtown Revitalization Readiness Report to Council in May and a series of meetings with over 50 stakeholder and community representatives. Community engagement will continue to take place over the summer months and into Fall, 2019, including in rural communities.

Ideas gathered from the community will be used to help capture the community’s current vision for downtown revitalization in Fort McMurray. Downtown revitalization is identified as key priority in Council’s 2018-2021 Strategic Plan. 

Any resident or stakeholder group can always request a one-on-one meeting on downtown revitalization or any initiative by contacting PULSE at rmwb.ca/pulse or 780.743.7000.
