The “Re-Inventing Fort Frances” committee started back to work eagerly at its Jan. 10 meeting after breaking for the Christmas season.
Regular weekly meetings have resumed.
A response from Northern Ontario Heritage Fund regarding Phase 1 of the application for funding is expected in the next couple of weeks.
That will prompt Phase 2 of the request for funding from the provincial level.
The Terms of Reference will be on the agenda for the next few meetings as a proposal for the consultant can be worked on concurrently while the wait is on.
“Re-Inventing” suggestion boxes soon will appear in several new locations. Look for them at La Place Rendez-Vous, Witherspoon’s One Stop, Cripes It’s a Castle, Rainy River Future Development, Fort Frances Pub-lic Library, Memorial Sports-plex, Town of Fort Frances office, as well as the current location (Rainy Lake Hotel).
Input from community members is very important as we compile ideas and terms for the consultant.
