The City of White Rock is hosting online workshops on Sept. 8 and 9 to invite residents and local businesses to provide input into a draft of the City’s post-pandemic Economic Development Strategic Plan.
The draft plan, to be shared at the workshops, comes with an updated vision, objectives and strategies based on current conditions and long-term trends affecting White Rock’s economic strength.
The updated Economic Development Strategic Plan will guide how jobs and businesses in White Rock change and grow in a post-pandemic future.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Aug. 31, 2021. A link will be provided.
The City asked for feedback in February and March 2021 from residents and business owners and managers. Here is a summary of that input, along with input from City staff, the Economic Development Advisory Committee, City Council, the White Rock BIA and the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce.
The updated Economic Development Strategic Plan is being developed by and for the people who live, work or have invested in a business in White Rock, with the survey results setting the foundation for future engagement.
A draft update to the Economic Development Strategic Plan is expected to be completed in the fall of 2021.
