At the Tourism Summit Tuesday night entrepreneur Treasure Daneliuk did a presentation on Main Street revitalization. She says a healthy downtown core is not only important to local residents, visitors and businesses but in attracting new businesses as it reflects the image of how a community sees itself. She explains if the downtown is neglected outsiders will consider this as a reflection on the health of the entire community adding if potential new businesses are looking at relocating or opening in our community the first things they are going to look at are the quality of life, the image, the viability and the potential for growth. Daneliuk says having a healthy downtown core also gives all the residents of the community pride and spirit and a place to congregate to enjoy restaurants, dining, entertainment, night life and shopping.
Community Futures Greenstone Manager Becky Cianflone says Main Streets in Flin Flon and Creighton are going to play a big role in the development of a tourism strategy for our communities.
