What is Invest Kootenay?
Invest Kootenay is a regional partnership. We focus on attracting, retaining and expanding investment in the entire Kootenay region, through the promotion of lifestyle advantages.
The Chamber of Commerce has recently sent its members a survey requesting input on vandalism, graffiti and anti-social behaviour. The results have been compiled in to one report and along with a letter have been presented to Mayor and Council. Many business owners would like to see the City reviewing how it works toward and combats vandalism and graffiti after incidents continue to be highlighted.
As summer disappears in to a distant memory you may like to take a look at the final Summer Socials report for 2013. Again we witnessed a number of businesses and organisations come together to provide entertainment and a vibrant atmosphere along 2nd Avenue.
The report outlines positive and negative comments along with a 'thank you' list to our sponsors. Without these sponsors and volunteers it is impossible for us to host and build on these events.
