On June 22, 2009 District of Sooke Council adopted Bylaw 408 Sooke Town Centre Revitalization that will provide incentives to revitalize the Sooke Town Centre Area in an environmentally sound manner.
Maureen Enser, Executive Director of the Urban Development Institute (UDI) states “ UDI is very supportive of Sooke’s Town Centre Stimulus Program. These are the types of incentives that the industry has been requesting from local governments for sometime. They not only support job growth: they are also targeted to sustainable development practices and affordable housing. It cannot be forgotten that for every million dollars spent on construction, 15 jobs are created. This is a win-win for everybody.”
If you are interested in more information on the vision of Sooke we encourage you to contact the District of Sooke.
