thrive835 Project Overview
Stakeholders play a key role in the thrive835 project
The Stakeholder Group includes members of the Fairview community and representatives from the Town of Fairview, Municipal District of Fairview #136, Heart of the Peace Economic Development, and the Fairview & District Chamber of Commerce.
Based on data collected throughout the project, the Stakeholder Group led by consultant Deb Kalyn, will develop Goals, Action Items, and Timelines that will form the foundation of a Regional Economic Growth Plan.
Information gathered through Consumer Surveys will help the Stakeholder Group to better understand the local, out-of-town, and online shopping habits of Fairview consumers.
Information gathered through Business Consulations will help the Stakeholder Group to better understand the current challenges facing small business owners.
Further data analysis will identify gaps in the products and services in the Fairview area, and uncover economic development opportunities in the Fairview region.
With a greater understanding of consumer and business needs in the Fairview region, the Stakeholder Group will have the tools to develop a set of Goals, Action Items, and Timelines to craft a Regional Economic Growth Plan.
The final draft of the Regional Economic Growth Plan will be presented to the Town of Fairview, and the Municipal District of Fairview #136 by mid December 2020.
Key to the implementation of the Regional Economic Growth Plan is the strong commitment made by the municipalities to act on the recommendations made by the Stakeholder Group.
