    Default Changes may be coming at Edmonton Downtown Business Association

    Looks like Jim Taylor is finally retiring. Saw this ad in the Journal on Saturday. http://daviespark.com/downtown-busin...tive-director/.

    Seemed to to be a nice guy but what has the downtown business association accomplished aside from free walking tours in the summer and a decent directory? Could this be an opportunity to get a different kind of leader to try to really accentuate Edmonton downtowns strengths instead of just being a soundbite guy.

    Jim did A LOT of work behind the scenes, but certainly time for a change.

    I am sure he was a valuable committee member representing the DBA on many downtown projects.
