Building a Community Outside the Ordinary: A Business Platform
The Peterborough Chamber of Commerce has released the ‘Building a Community Outside the Ordinary’ platform for the upcoming municipal election. The platform outlines three pillars of a strong, resilient community and includes ten recommended actions that are needed to support the development of opportunities for everyone in the City and County of Peterborough.
