There’s still time to have your say on a winterized version of the Ross Street Patio. The survey deadline has been extended until Thursday. It was originally slated to wrap up on June 20 but the Downtown Business Association requested more time.

There’s still time to have your say on a winterized version of the Ross Street Patio.

The survey deadline has been extended until Thursday. It was originally slated to wrap up on June 20 but the Downtown Business Association requested more time.

Downtown co-ordinator Jordan Furness said they would like to hear more from businesses in the area.

The city is conducting research into whether leaving the Ross Street Patio as a permanent structure would be worthwhile. Once the research is completed, a proposal will be developed and presented to city council for consideration later this summer.

Downtown business owners and residents are invited to participate by going to www.reddeer.ca/RossStreetPatio
