City of Sault Ste. Marie - Seeking your input

Starts: 2013-11-06 Ends: 2013-11-06

 
The City of Sault Ste. Marie is hosting a Public Open House to discuss a proposed Downtown revitalization strategy.
 
The Open House invites public input on the strategy and will highlight proposed financial incentive programs and potential streetscape improvements.
 
Date: Wednesday, November 6, 2013 – 6 to 9 p.m.
 
Location: Downtown Association office – 498 Queen Street East
 
The City is embarking on a proposed Downtown revitalization strategy which seeks to encourage new private sector investment into existing buildings throughout the Downtown area.
 
As well, to compliment potential private sector investment, it is important to cultivate a “sense of place” that instills a feeling of safety, age-friendliness, and promotes opportunities for social gathering and interaction.
 
This sense of place can be achieved through targeted investments in streetscape amenities such as boulevard improvements, furniture, plantings and waste receptacles.
 
The purpose of the Open House is to initiate discussions on the above mentioned strategies and solicit input from the area business and property owners.
 
Business and property owners from the Queen Street and Downtown areas, as well as the general public are encouraged to attend.
 
A copy of the Draft Downtown strategy document can be found on the City website at www.cityssm.on.ca – City Hall Bulletins.
