Chilliwack Moving Forward Event
On October 3, 2014 the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation and the Chilliwack & District Real Estate Board Commercial Division presented Chilliwack Moving Forward 2014, featuring presentations by renowned demographer Ryan Berlin and Walas Concepts.
In addition to learning about the driving forces behind growth in Chilliwack from Ryan Berlin, the group also took a closer look at downtown and the current revitalization project. Gerben van Straaten, along with members of the Walas team, presented a vision for a vibrant downtown and shared a video about the City of Ann Arbor, MI, and how their vital downtown operates. The afternoon ended with a Q&A session on the downtown revitalization project.
A variety of suggestions and opinions were shared by the group, consisting primarily of local realtors, bankers, investors and other local partners.
Additionally, maps showing the vacancy, ownership and business usage within the downtown core were presented. These maps gave a greater understanding of the current uses of downtown properties as well as a glimpse into opportunities that are present.
