Downtown Community Council (DTCC) Priorities List

Downloadable copy

The below list of priorities reflects the outcome of a workshop done January 17, 2018. This list was created using three council documents:


- The 2018 CIP/CIB list & comments created August 2017


- Notes from the council’s ‘walkabouts’ done Summer of 2017


- Results from a survey issued by the DCC Fall of 2017.


Each of these documents were reviewed separately to identify the priorities. With each document’s priorities identified the three documents were cross examined to determine the underlying common priorities to identify those that are most important to the community. Using these three documents to create this list of priorities helps us to reach a broader scope of the downtown community members and understand the needs of the community as a whole. These priorities were presented to the February 7, 2018 Council meeting. It was motioned for approval of these priorities, it was seconded, and the motioned passed unanimously.


Consolidated List of Priorities
