Calgary's economy is struggling and small businesses feel this the most. Having been a small business owner for 20 years, and the manager of the Kensington Business Revitalization Zone, I know what others are going through.
On Monday, Councillor Woolley and I will bring forward a proposal to Council to address one of the root causes for the challenges businesses face: a faltering Downtown economy with 30% office vacancy rates. We intend to bring together the best minds to create a plan for a more resilient, creative, and diversified Downtown.
Businesses across Calgary, both small and large, depend on a strong Downtown. A strong Downtown is a strong Calgary.
