Open house showcases Gateways, Portals, Connections and Wayfinding

RMOW seeks input on four major projects



The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) wants to hear your thoughts on some of its biggest upcoming projects.

At an open house on Jan. 21, the RMOW rolled out its Master Wayfinding Strategy, Village Portals and Banners, Cultural Connector and Gateway Loop Enhancement projects.

The four projects are among the 60 or so action items produced through the RMOW's Economic Partnership Initiative, CAO Mike Furey told a crowd of about 100.

"We're at a really critical stage in the development of these projects," Furey said.

"We wanted to trot them out in front of you and get your input as we go forward in the coming months."

The projects are designed to improve the Whistler guest experience, increase occupancy and help in growing the resort.

"These are multi-million dollar projects," Furey said.

"Both council and staff are getting ready to prepare and load the 2015 budget and these will be part of the considerations in that."

At the open house, RMOW staff made presentations on each of the four projects before taking questions from the crowd.

An online survey can also be found on the website.

The survey closes Wednesday, Feb. 4 at noon.
