Public Meeting – August 11, 2020

We will be holding a public meeting for the St. Catharines Downtown Association business membership on Tuesday August 11, 2020 from 6:00 p.m.  to 8:00 p.m. at the Meridian Centre, 1 David S. Howes Way, St. Catharines (Community Dressing Rooms Entrance). This meeting is being held to address concerns raised by some of our downtown business members about the operations of the Downtown Association.

Business members of the St. Catharines Downtown Association are invited to attend this meeting, either in person or online via Zoom. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are limited to a maximum of 50 persons at the Meridian Centre. If you would like to ask questions at the meeting (either live or via Zoom), please provide your questions in advance so that the Downtown Association may have the relevant and appropriate information on hand.

  • If you would like to attend the meeting in person

  • Any questions you are planning to ask at the meeting

Seats will be reserved in the order that replies are received. To accommodate as many members as possible at the live meeting, and to keep within the 50 person limit, we may find it necessary to restrict attendance to one person per downtown business.
