Town Council was presented with an Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO) award in the category of Redevelopment Initiatives at last night’s Council meeting. The town received the honour for its leadership in developing the Bronte Business Action Plan. Oakville Economic Development staff accepted the award in February at a ceremony in London, Ontario.
The Bronte Business Action Plan, led by the town’s Economic Development department, was initiated to further Bronte’s economic development and urban revitalization.
“This award recognizes that great things can be achieved when we work together to create Canada’s most livable town,” Mayor Rob Burton said.
Urban Marketing Collaborative consultants worked with town staff and the Bronte BIA to develop the plan by providing retail market expertise and stakeholder engagement.
The EDCO judges commented that the collaborative approach taken by the town to work with an outside consultant and the BIA was instrumental in facilitating understanding of issues, creating buy-in as the action plan was developed, and keeping cost down.
The Bronte Business Action Plan is using the Four Pillars of the Main Street approach — Organization, Marketing, Physical Design and Economic Development — to achieve their goal of economic development and urban revitalization. The Bronte BIA will implement the action plan from 2013 through 2016.
