Downtown Plan Engagement

Public participation is not about having bums in seats… it is about sharing information, creating a conversation, discussing options and a forming a decision that reflects the values of the community.

The Downtown Plan project has made public consultation an integral part of the process and we thank you for your commitment to making our community the most livable in Canada.
