Recently a resident in Glendale asked me how her commercial area could be more like Marda Loop. One of the reasons for the success of Marda Loop has been its organization as a Business Revitalization Zone (BRZ). These areas have contributed enormously to the quality of life throughout the City and I believe there are several opportunities to create BRZs in Ward 6.
As the 37th St and 17th Ave SW area in particular has undergone significant WestLRT construction, I have asked Administration to report back to Council early next year on the tools we may have to encourage new BRZs to be created. I look forward to starting a dialogue with businesses and communities soon after.
