Ridgetown BIA Moving Forward to Council
Very soon, Ridgetown may have its very own Business Improvement Area.
An information session was held last night and while it was not a full house, those who did attend were supportive of a BIA.
Jim Brown, co-owner/publisher of Ridgetown Independent News, says local businesses have been talking about the idea and most of them are in favour.
“The general consensus is that we’re not looking at an amount that is going to create a great hardship for anybody,” said Brown, “And it’s going to assist greatly in filling in some of the areas we need to work on.”
The proposition is now expected to move forward to Council once all of the feedback letters from the businesses in Ridgetown are compiled and a report is put together.
And Brown is quite pleased with how quickly things are moving along and with how people have been reacting so far.
“I’m pleased with the reaction we are getting, and the support–it’s been great,” said Brown.
Brown now expects the report to be sent before Council sometime in June for approval.
