Mayor Given holds coffee shop meet up with residents

Grande Prairie Mayor Bill Given has held the first of what he hopes will become regular “coffee-shop style” gatherings with city residents.

The informal chat took place a day after his yearly State of the City address, which served as a starting point for conversation.

“I was also able to pass on a little bit about council’s strategic planning; there was a lot of talk about downtown, a lot of discussion about mixed use development, where you see commercial and residential in the same building, and from the group that was here it seemed to be a lot of desire to move in that direction.”

The importance of transit in our city was also discussed during the meeting.

Given used a similar type of event to connect with voters during his re-election campaign last fall.
