The future of business attraction, retention and retail growth in Lloydminster will be explored as the city of Lloydminster presents its findings from the retail gap summer survey.
There were over 730 completed submissions from June 2 to July 25 as city planners sought feedback from residents and area consumers to analyze the retail needs of the community. Officials add the data will support the city’s economic development strategy to attract retailers and help to grow local business.
“The quantifiable findings will be used to support opportunities and recommendations which will benefit existing businesses, developers, property owners and economic developers in increasing competitiveness and attracting future retail. The final report will identify leakage and help illustrate strengths and opportunities in the local market,’ says Katlin Ducherer, economic development officer.
The city is inviting everyone to come to the presentation of the survey findings next Monday Oct. 17 from 7-9 p.m. at the Synergy Theatre, Lakeland College (2602 – 59 Avenue).
The data will be presented to council in a final report on Oct. 17. Following the presentation, the survey findings and suggested community growth strategies will be available on the city’s YourVoiceLloyd.ca.
