Economy & Downtown Revitalization
The Lethbridge economy is one of my top priorities moving forward. It will determine the state of our streets, the quality of our lives, and so much more. In the wake of Covid-19, and even before this pandemic, our local economy has been struggling.
First and foremost I will reduce red tape to attract new business. Shorter wait times, expedient permitting procedures, and more will contribute to making Lethbridge a desirable location for local entrepreneurs and new business branches alike. I will continue plans on the construction of Lethbridge’s third bridge, as I discussed earlier, to improve city navigation and infrastructure, opening a gate from our developing West Side to our South Side. I will support and promote our Agri-Food Trade & Convention Centre, and strive to revitalize our Downtown core.
I believe the key to restoring our downtown is to restore the safety of our community, support our local economy, efficiently manage municipal infrastructure and resources, and continue to advocate for housing for our homeless residents and treatment and recovery options for those struggling with addiction.
As your Mayor I will support local business and focus on restoring our struggling economy and Downtown core.
