Q: How would you support the development of a vibrant downtown core in Elkford?

A: I have been pushing for the creation of a downtown core, a gathering place within walking distance of the mall and the post office, with retail space and a mix of rental apartments and small offices spaces above, for many years.

The land is there, and it is all privately owned. Although we cannot force the sale or development of this land, we are always marketing our town to developers, and we are actively reducing the timeline that would be required for a developer to build on these lots.
