Downtown Oliver Action Plan

Date: 2017

The Downtown Action Plan outlines a range of strategic actions the Town of Oliver and partners could pursue to retain and grow existing businesses, attract new investment, and enhance the public realm in support of the ongoing effort to revitalize Downtown Oliver. The Action Plan is made up of 11 phased and prioritized actions organized under three interrelated strategy areas:  Strategic Capacity; Business Attraction and Support; and Development. Developed over a five-month period, the plan included significant staff, Council, business and stakeholder engagement. Downtown revitalization was identified by Oliver Council as a core issue to explore in their recently completed Town of Oliver Official Community Plan (OCP) update. As one of the community’s most valued places, Downtown revitalization emerged as Oliver residents’ top priority through OCP engagement.
