I'd be happy to chat and perhaps enough folks can come on board to prepare an official presentation or vision to bring to council. All it would take is a few year plan to make the investments I've suggested and with the momentum we already have, you can be sure new investment will follow. But we need to make downtown a compact, vibrant place that people want to come and see. We aren't going to compete with a mega-downtown up the freeway, but we can create our own little hub of urbanism in a natural setting that people love to enjoy for a weekend or day-trip from the GTA and elsewhere. Our 1950's vibe through the oldest parts of our city is really the biggest obstacle we face. Create livable, green, safe streets with a nod to our history via cobblestone, iron lampposts and public art and this would become a great tourist destination surrounded by all the wonderful natural amenities we've been talking about.
