The date has been set for an economic development forum in Summerland this month.

You can bring your ideas about improving Summerland’s economic future to the town hall meeting planned for Feb. 15.

Municipal council will be forming an economic strategic action committee in the near future in an effort to attract and grow business in Sumerland.

The committee is forming in part because of concerns about the slow economy which is affecting Summerland and the rest of the country.

The council is seeking the public’s opinion and ideas on Summerland’s  future economic development, including how it might look, where it might be located and what may be considered to bring the business into Summerland.

The meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 15 at the IOOF Hall, 9536 Main Street.

More  information is available at Municipal Hall at 250-494-6451.

Suggestions about economic development can be mailed to Mayor Janice Perrino at mayor@summerland.ca.
