The Gibsons Public Market (GPM) is undertaking a major funding campaign for their proposed renovation and expansion project. GPM has approached Gibsons Alliance of Business and Community (GABC), asking to present their plans. The GABC Board would like to hear about the Market’s development plans and many of our members have raised questions/concerns about the GPM. Concerns range from general inquiries about the project, plans for building expansion, GPM’s relationship with the Town, (eg. the shuffling of $275,000 in Parks Acquisition funds to the Market, and the waiving of $110,000 in development cost charge requirements), and the economic viability of the operation.
So GABC and GPM have agreed to co-host an open Public Dialogue session.
The Gibsons Public Market will show its video PR presentation on the Market’s plans but this is more than just a sales pitch opportunity. GPM representatives Pam Robertson and Gerry Zipursky will be on hand to answer questions from GABC members and supporters. GABC Directors will be present to provide what information and context we have, ask direct questions, share our concerns and those we’ve heard so far from our membership and the public.
The session will be facilitated by Fran Miller. We expect a free exchange of information, respectful dialogue and an open discussion on issues related to the Gibsons Public Market project. Come with your questions, concerns and suggestions, or just to listen.
Please join us for what promises to be an informative session.
