(TRI-CITIES) August 31, 2023 — How do traffic flow, pedestrian access, bike/micro-mobility lanes and parking affect your business? The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce recently hosted an online Town Hall meeting on the City of Coquitlam's Strategic Transportation Plan, to address these issues and more.
