Public Engagement Session for Downtown Revitalization

The City of Estevan, along with George Harris Collaborative Inc., is looking for input into the city revitalization plans from businesses, social groups and members of the community.

Everyone is welcome to join city staff and members of the George Harris Collaborative team on November 23rd from 6-9pm at the Days Inn to hear more about the project to enhance Estevan’s downtown. The open house style gathering aims to gather input on how people use the downtown core, what are the opportunities and challenges, and what would the community like to see included.
“The Downtown has good bones. With the help of the people of Estevan, we can build on this to make Downtown a desirable and memorable destination, with something for everyone” said landscape architect, Patty McKee, upon visiting Estevan last week. “A road is something you drive on. A street is somewhere you stroll down.”
To help us collect city-wide input, November 17th’s edition of the Estevan Mercury will include a 5 by 7 printed insert that, on the back, includes questions. We ask that you please bring this with you on November 23rd if you are able to attend the community engagement session or drop of the card, with your input, at City Hall or Leisure Services at Affinity Place.

The City of Estevan would like to thank the community and business owners for all their support early in this project and look forward to seeing everyone’s input contribute to positive changes in the downtown core.
