As you may already know, the DVBIA is currently in the process of renewing our ten-year mandate, which—if approved— would begin on April 1, 2020. The process leading up to renewal has involved a lot of member consultation. We’ve done large-scale surveys, conducted focus groups, and have had one-on-one meetings with some of the most engaged members – all of which has guided our more recent five-year strategic plan. What we heard was that our members wanted to see more projects in the areas of community safety, festival sponsorship, and placemaking. Our new ten-year mandate will allow us to do more public space activations, creating a more vibrant, welcoming, and fun downtown core.
So now, we invite you to sit back and enjoy checking out some of our favourite public spaces!
