Name of creator
The Moose Jaw Main Street Project was created in 1981 with the aim of redeveloping Moose Jaw’s Main Street. The project’s creator and first director was Gordon Fulton. Stuart Lazear became project coordinator in 1984 when Fulton left to participate in a national project.
The Moose Jaw Main Street Project followed the Heritage Canada Foundation’s Main Street Approach designed to revitalize a municipality’s downtown in part using government funding.
After Heritage Canada’s three year commitment to the project ended on June 30, 1985, the Moose Jaw Main Street Project was absorbed by The Business Improvement District (BID). Lydia Lewycky became co-coordinator in 1985, and coordinator in 1986. BID was originally formed in August 1985 with a goal of improving downtown Moose Jaw. It held its first meeting on December 5, 1985. Emmet Reidy became director in 1988.
BID was involved in several projects such as replacing Main Street’s lamp standards with pre-WWI lamp standards, and parking improvements.
After funding cuts, BID dissolved in 2010.
