Business Park Revitalization Update

Over the last several months your directors have been moving forward with the implementation of the 'LERI' (Leaside Economic Revitalization Initiative) plan for the business park. A committee has been formed to oversee the implementation. This committee's mandate is to ensure that we have a vibrant and dynamic Business Park. With this in mind we need your help.

Some of you may remember those famous war posters, "Your country needs you!" This is your chance to become involved. We have the opportunity over the next few years to revitalize the business park. Your assistance is required as committee members to bring forward ideas and implement those as set out in our Business Action Plan. These committees will be composed of representatives from our member companies, the Leaside Property Owners Association, local government representatives and interested individuals.

Between September and December, these committees will meet to formulate ideas and implementation strategies. The Chairperson of each of these committees will then present their committee ideas to the LERI committee. Together priorities will be determined for capital improvements, employment opportunities and marketing of the Business Park.

The LERI committee conducted its first meeting in June and all the members of the Business Park Association recently received information on the five committees that are required. I encourage you to call Leonard Linton or myself and advise us as to which committee interests you.

I thank you on behalf of your directors for your continued support of the Leaside Business Park.

Ray Hunt,
President, LBPA.
