Riverfront Centre one piece of big picture

"The proposed “Riverfront Centre” is just one piece of the puzzle in attracting residents and developers to Trail."

One common theme expressed by most individuals running for council or mayor in Trail is the revitalization of the downtown core.

This isn’t the only agenda presented in their campaign messages but, it reflects a common feeling that downtown core development is one of the priorities. Not only do candidates feel this is a priority but, over the years many residents have expressed the same concern.

The proposed “Riverfront Centre” (Library & Heritage Centre), is just one piece of the puzzle in attracting residents and developers to Trail. The centre will go a long way to providing the amenities needed to attract residents should an adult living complex be developed on the riverfront. Also, don’t forget, along with new housing, comes new businesses and revitalization of our downtown core.

Let’s not be short-sighted and just look at the short term effects of this development but have the foresight to see the long term benefits the “Riverfront Centre” will bring to Trail.
