Where did the idea for a Business Support Program come from?
In 2015, City Council directed Administration through a Notice of Motion (NM2015) to consult with the impacted business community to develop a business support program, and report back to the Green Line Committee, prior to construction of the Green Line LRT.
For the past few years, we have been looking at construction impacts to businesses during similar infrastructure projects. We have been learning from businesses and communities impacted by Green Line’s enabling works projects in Ramsay, Highfield, Ogden and Douglas Glen. We have been testing ideas and working to better understand our stakeholders in preparation for LRT construction so that we can set ourselves up to better support impacted businesses.
