The City of Port Alberni is in the process of developing the Uptown District Revitalization Strategy (UDRS), which will revisit and build upon the goals outlined in the City of Port Alberni’s Uptown Waterfront Report from 2007.

The City’s 2019-2023 Corporate Strategic Plan has refocused efforts on the Uptown District. The UDRS is being developed to understand the needs of the area and to identify priorities that relate to social and economic revitalization. The outcomes and initiatives developed as part of the UDRS will also help inform the City’s next review and update of the Official Community Plan.

To help gather feedback from the public, the City has launched a public survey which was available from April 30, 2020 to May 21, 2020. The survey was well received by the public, with feedback being generally supportive of the strategy's development There is clear support from the public to address social challenges faced by residents of the area, in addition to working towards broader economic development goals.

The City is now looking to work with local stakeholders, service providers, businesses, and neighbourhood residents to gather input to help further inform the strategy.
