There has been a lot of focus lately about developing Mission’s downtown area. If you are considering opening a business there, now is the time to do it. Future and current business owners can take advantage of the incentive package available until 2016. The package includes renovation tax exemptions, application for grants, an early benefit tax program and more. With new businesses like the Candy Shack and Martin’s Downtown Restaurant, downtown Mission is already looking hopeful. For inquiries contact the economic development officer, Stacey Crawford.
