Omemee Explores BIA Options - KawarthaLakes Press Release

Business Committees of Council Explore BIA Options

For the past year, Economic Development has been working with the Omemee Businessesand Coboconk – Norland and Area Businesses to discern an organizational structure that will support their goals. The two business groups have developed relationships, work plans and a vision for their communities. The next step is to adopt a structure such as a Chamber of Commerce, Merchant Association or Business Improvement Area (BIA) to put their vision into action.
 Steering Committees have been appointed in both communities to explore options.

 'I’m excited to see the interest of businesses in the community and look forward to growth and prosperity in our community as we continue to work together.' shared Omemee Businesses Co-Chair Janice Salsbury.
Denise Williams  Business Development and Retention Officer for the City of Kawartha Lakes outlined steps in a BIA Process.
 'The process to start a Business Improvement Area is to first discern the need, gather stakeholders, decide on a boundary, create a budget and ask for Council support. We have some of this work completed in these communities.” explained Ms. Williams.

Mayor Ric Magee Commends Local Business Leaders  Efforts .

 'The strength of Kawartha Lakes is building on the success of our business people in all of our communities like Coboconk, Norland and Omemee where our staff is working with business leaders to grow and expand our local economy. The creation of Business Improvement Areas will be decided by those business people and support new opportunities. We thank these business leaders for their dedication, commitment and service to the residents and visitors to Kawartha Lakes,'says Mayor Ric McGee. 
The deadline for contacting Randy Smith Omemee Committee of Council Chair to be on the Steering Committee was March 31, 2013 noon.
