What's this project all about?

 

Vision

To create an attractive, active, animated and vibrant downtown where people come together to live, meet, work, stay, interact and engage.

It will be the cultural, social and economic heart of our community where citizens and visitors can celebrate and experience the natural setting, heritage, culture and the arts.

Objectives

  • To contribute to an economically successful vibrant downtown
  • To create a cultural focus for the town in the downtown area
  • To provide facilities and infrastructure that meet existing and future needs
  • To protect and enhance the natural environmental and cultural heritage of downtown
  • To develop solutions that are financially sustainable

Summary

The Downtown Plan is comprised of two studies — the Downtown Cultural Hub, and the Downtown Transportation and Streetscape.

The Downtown Cultural Hub Study will explore opportunities to create a downtown cultural and performing arts space including: a performing arts centre, art gallery, library, outdoor program space, and indoor cultural space or digital hub that will become the cultural, social, and economic heart of our community.

The Downtown Transportation and Streetscape Study will assess the current traffic and roadway conditions in downtown Oakville and create recommendations to enhance the roadways, beautify streets, improve pedestrian/cycle ways and revitalize the Towne Square, by introducing design standards as well as increasing connectivity, mobility and accessibility.
