Revitalization Initiatives

Downtown Enhancement Report Now Available for Review

 

The Village of Keremeos held a public meeting on August 22, 2016 to collect input on how Keremeos could be visually enhanced, thereby paving the way for a fresh look at an economic development strategy for our community. The Visual Enhancement Strategy, conducted by CTQ Consultants, was made possible through a grant from the Ministry of Forests Rural Dividend Fund.

 

The consultants have completed the report based on input received from the public meeting, their own observations, and discussions with Village Council and staff. The draft report was presented to Council at their Regular Council meeting on October 3, 2016 and written feedback about the report was received up to October 14, 2016.

The Village has since received additional grant funding from the Ministry of Forests Rural Dividend Fund to develop strategies to attract and retain businesses and to implement several priority projects highlighted in the report.  We encourage all residents to review this document and provide input into the development of these strategies and initiatives.
