If you do, you probably are a Member or Associate Member of the Old Town Kemptville Business Improvement Area and should plan to attend the BIA Expansion Information Meeting on May 24 at 6pm in the North Grenville Public Library.
The BIA is in the early stages of consulting with Kemptville businesses about expanding its borders to better serve the community. They’ve completed a Prospectus that lays out their rationale for expansion and provides details on how that might be achieved. The BIA is actively seeking feedback on this proposal; there will be time for questions and answers after the presentation. The Prospectus can be downloaded from www.oldtownkemptville.com and hard copies will be available on the 24th. This meeting will be the first of several public meetings before the BIA finalizes plans and brings them to Council in 2019.
Old Town Kemptville BIA membership includes owners of commercial property and their business tenants within a defined area downtown (see the map of the BIA footprint). The BIA extended Associate Membership to commercial property owners within the Rideau-Sanders Triangle two years ago. While the meeting is open, both Members and Associate Members are encouraged to attend the meeting to find out more detail and to have their questions answered by the Expansion Committee.
The Old Town Kemptville BIA Expansion Committee is Chaired by Stephen Bent, BIA Treasurer and Manager of CIBC- Kemptville. Others members are Deb Wilson, BIA Chair and co-owner of Grahame’s Bakery, and Andrew Beveridge, CPA.
Join your business neighbours in the Program Room of the North Grenville Library at 6pm on May 24 for the BIA Expansion Information Meeting. Light refreshments will be served.
