MUNICIPAL ADVOCACY:
City Development Permitting Process

THANK YOU to all members of our business community who reached out for advice and support that spurred on this request for feedback. The thoughtful responses and solution based recommendations  that your Advocacy Committee received are so appreciated and valued as we continue this conversation with our Municipal Government. We can ensure you that Mayor and Council, as well as the City staff, are focused on working to improve the overall process, efficiency and timelines around the permitting process. The conversation will continue...

The City recognizes the value in improving communications and has issued a second  on June 1, 2018   that will be followed with regular communications and updates. 

PROVINCIAL ADVOCACY :
Are you concerned about the economical and safety impacts regarding the stretch of Highway 1 around Three Valley Gap? 

We encourage our business community to support this advocacy effort by taking the time to write a letter directly to Premiere Horgan about 3VG; why  improvements are needed and how it has affected your business economically .

The safety of this stretch of highway affects our community and visitors.
The economics of this highway continuously being closed negatively affects our business community.
Collectively, we can unite to help to make a difference.

   Important Notice to YourLink customers
Your Action is Required!
 
There have been many changes to Revelstoke Cable over the last few years - from adding internet services to upgrading to digital TV to rebranding to YourLink Revelstoke. Through it all, much of the core local team have steadily supported our community. We are very proud to have served Revelstoke and appreciate all the support we have received in return along the way.

As you may know, Revelstoke Cable was purchased and rebranded to YourLink many years ago. In October 2016, YourLink was purchased by TELUS. The YourLink Revelstoke Cable network will be turned down on October 3rd, 2018. We encourage our YourLink Revelstoke customers to make the switch to TELUS. 

The switch is not automatic and your action is required. To avoid any service disruptions, please contact TELUS as soon as possible at:  
  • Residential: 1-855-502-2332 or email pfconnect@telus.com
  • TELUS Small Business Sales: 1-877-352-0898
  • Hospitality Sales: Complete the contact form at telus.com/Hospitality to receive a callback from a specialist
Also, remember to call YourLink to disconnect your services and return any equipment.

We're confident that you'll be happy with internet and Optik TV services on the TELUS PureFibre network.
Thank you all for your support.
 
Sincerely,
Tracey, Sheldon, Tyler, Shawn, Linda, Kathy, Sophie (and of course Cheryl)
