Yorkton Business Improvement District (YBID) and the City of Yorkton open the Gallagher Centre Seating Area
The seating area is situated in front of the Gallagher Centre just adjacent to the main front entrance of the Centre.
Created in partnership with the City of Yorkton, YBID supported the Outdoor Seating Area project by engaging with City of Yorkton planners and leadership, with the aim of placing more pedestrian friendly infrastructure in the east end of our district.
The City of Yorkton contributed the space, planning and design including landscaping and trees as well as providing ongoing upkeep and repair. YBID purchased the seating, tables, benches and other infrastructure that were designed to be removable over winter months – to prevent accidental damage from winter snow moving operations at the entrance of the centre.
Mayor Bob Maloney shared with attendees at the opening “That this project is a perfect example of how business and civic government can work together, improving civic infrastructure and working to make Yorkton and even better place to live”.
We couldn’t agree more.
