FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Prince George, B.C. - The City of Prince George has released the digital survey for the Civic Core District plan as well as an additional in-person community visioning session for the Civic Core District Plan project.

The Civic Core online survey launched and will remain open until September 15. This information will be used to develop a preliminary plan to present to Council in December.

A second in-person visioning session is planned for Saturday, August 19, at the PG Farmers’ Market 1310 3rd Avenue from 8:30am until 2pm.

This follows the successful session held last Friday as part of the Foodie Fridays event in the Canada Games Plaza.

“We’re pleased the City is able to offer various channels for engagement with our citizens on such an important topic,” Manager of Planning & Development, Wil Wedel said.

“We’ve heard some great ideas so far via the initial session and the user group workshops.”

The Civic Core District Plan (CCDP) is a guide that defines the long-term vision for the municipal properties in the downtown area near the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre. It will have strategies, along with timelines, for how to enhance the area while also meeting needs of those who live and work in the community.

The plan area of the Civic Core District is limited to the municipal owned and operated properties surrounding City Hall, including: Kopar Memorial Arena, the Conference and Civic Centre, Canfor Leisure Pool, Prince George Public Library (Bob Harkins branch), Two Rivers Art Gallery and Civic Plaza.

More information on the CCDP can be found via the City website page, feedback and questions can also be directed to civiccore@princegeorge.ca.
