Second year in a row city to tour businesses in Terrace and Thornhill

TERRACE – In its continuing effort to keep in touch with the business community, City of Terrace officials and volunteers will tour business establishments May 10.

This is the second year the city has staged what it calls a business walk to locations in Terrace and Thornhill.

“They will ask a few basic questions about doing business in the area,” explained city information officer Brian Doddridge. “The questions are meant to keep the visit very conversational, and will take only take a few minutes of your valuable time as a business owner/manager,” he said.

Doddridge said the city hopes to uncover business climate trends as it compiles data on targetted business areas over time.
