ReDesign Rupert to host community mapping session Friday

The next step for city's ReDesign Rupert initiative is set to launch tomorrow, as the team from the Community Development Institute hosts a Community Mapping session at Javadotcup on Third Avenue.

The popular coffee shop directly across from the Capital Theatre building will provide the backdrop for an hour of presentations from representatives of the City of Prince Rupert, Community Futures and staff of the CDI who will outline what the Community mapping concept is all about.
