Some business owners in Lethbridge’s downtown and surrounding area have been vocal about pervasive negative perceptions.
Today, at the regular SACPA meeting, set for noon at the Royal Canadian Legion, speaker Erica Pyska will present: “What is it like owning a business in downtown Lethbridge during the drug crisis?”
Pyska, who recently sold Plum restaurant, will share some of her experiences and thoughts on the ever-changing dynamic of downtown Lethbridge. She has insight on growing a business through economic and political shifts, ecological responsibility and hardships, and supporting people from all walks of life in the downtown core.
Some business owners and employees are feeling the pressure, but today’s speaker will explain how she, along with other business owners, are fighting back and meeting with City officials to address downtown issues and perceptions.
