Nelson businesses tackle critical issues at Thursday meeting

The Nelson Business Association is hosting a meeting this week to address what it describes as "three critical issues."

The Nelson Business Association is hosting a meeting this week to address what it describes as “three critical issues.”

The association met with the City late last year where they were given an overview of the topics which include: sidewalk sandwich boards, amenity areas and the dog bylaw.

Owner of Cotton’s Clothing Company Noreen Lynas told the Star Nelson’s dog bylaw is having an impact on tourism as dog owners are choosing not to visit Nelson.

The City also wants to tackle the issue of rogue sandwich boards which do not have approval.

The business association said that they feel the meeting on Thursday will be an important opportunity for the voices of local business to be heard.

“The [Nelson Business Association] is eager to discuss possible solutions and present the voice of downtown business,” read a letter from the association.

The meeting will be head on Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hume Hotel.
