“We’re always thrilled anytime a business opens its doors in our community, but when a business owner decides to double down by upgrading, beautifying, or renovating their location — it’s a testament to their faith in our municipality,” said Tim MacPhee, Mayor, Town of Vegreville. “The C1 Revitalization program is small way to acknowledge a businesses owner’s loyalty to Vegreville as they’re not just re-investing in their business, their re-investing in our community.”
