Visitors will have a new aid to help them find their way around Clearwater and area with a business map recently erected on the meridian by Brookfield Mall.

“It also has information about Vavenby and Blue River,” said Jeff Lamond, president of Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce. “We have members in both those places and we want to get more.”

The location is good because tourists and locals come there to get groceries, he said.

There is space left on the map for pictures and advertisements.

The reverse side is to be a community bulletin board to promote local events such a the Stargazing Festival held each summer.

 

“What’s really exciting is there are 98 businesses and services listed,” said District of Clearwater councillor and acting-mayor Shelley Sim. “This map makes visible what a vibrant community this is.”
