Find out what the future holds for the West Shore

Chamber of commerce hosts annual Vision West Shore in February

What does the future of the West Shore look like?

Residents can find out during the Vision WestShore 2018 next month.

Put on by the West Shore Chamber of Commerce, the event includes a cocktail reception and dinner, followed by the main event which features a dynamic panel discussion with the mayors of the five western municipalities.

There will also be opportunities to ask questions.

“It’s a great opportunity to catch up with the West Shore mayors and where the West Shore is going,” said Julie Lawlor, executive director of the chamber, adding people can provide questions in advance as well.

“It’s an opportunity to really connect with the West Shore community, both the business community and our municipal leaders and also to have all of them in one room, it doesn’t typically happen in an event like this … It’s not often people come together for that conversation.”

The event follows the success of a similar event in 2016, when roughly 125 people attended.

Lawlor expects a similar turnout this year as well.

Vision WestShore 2018 takes place Thursday, Feb. 1 at the Olympic View Golf Club from 5 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $85 for members and $100 for non-members. For more information or to reserve tickets call 250-478-1130.
