City working to support businesses affected by 100th Street construction

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Scoop Clothing manager Whitney Armstrong says her meeting with the city regarding 100th Street was constructive and hopes to collaborate with them on a potential community event.

“They’re really on board with helping us and finding ways to support the businesses downtown,” Armstrong said.

“We’re working on trying to get some community kind of event going on on the street as well. I’m hoping to see that come to fruition at some point,” Armstrong continued.

Armstrong says the event may look something like a monthly block party that local businesses could participate in.

“They have some logistics to worry about on their end. I’m hoping to connect with them soon again on how we can go forward with it.”

Armstrong adds that the city and bylaw were receptive to adjusting the parking situation on 100th Street and that she’s happy to have their support.
