The City of Revelstoke and the CSRD have established an Economic Recovery Task Force to guide the process of recovery from the pandemic shut down.
“The key challenge – and opportunity facing Revelstoke is the ability to identify immediate and long-term needs, assess various initiatives, and craft a response to the economic disruptions caused by Covid-19 that will best serve the needs of the local community,” said Ingrid Brohn, director of community and economic development for the city, in a report to council.
The task force will help to create resiliency and recovery plans and identify key actions needed to ensure Revelstoke is in a strong position coming out of the pandemic.
The task force will be an offshoot of the Economic Development Commission and be a non-partisan, multi-sector think tank that will receive input from a variety of sectors.
The group will also liaise with the Social Development Committee to ensure support for the whole community through the recovery process.
