There is a groundswell of community advocates converging in Welland to collectively lead the process of change needed to bring the bloom back to the rose in Downtown Welland

As a real estate professional one of the key aspects that is capturing my attention at this point in time are the Incentive Programs that are being proposed and will potentially be available to Downtown investors once the Community Improvement Plan is finalized.
