Neighbourhood Revitalization Project - Downtown Sarnia and Mitton Village
The City of Sarnia’s Neighbourhood Revitalization Project is an initiative funded in part by Ontario’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). The project aims to enhance the areas of Downtown and Mitton Village by identifying opportunities for improvements to public space, marketing and promoting the areas, and providing business development services. We hope to strengthen the entrepreneurship ecosystem to attract businesses to the areas, as well as help existing local businesses thrive.
- What is it? The project will begin by updating the areas' business inventories, compiling historical and archival data on the areas, and hosting community engagement events. The project team will also host a series of public consultations, digital surveys, and pop-ups in the coming months to gather input from residents, businesses, and organizations in these areas. The feedback gained will help inform some of the short-term activation initiatives, and longer-term strategic planning priorities, for the revitalization of these areas.
- What areas are included in the project? Downtown Sarnia and Mitton Village, as defined in the City's Community Improvement Plan, will be the focus areas for this project. But the entire community is welcome to share there input on what's needed to enhance these areas. Look for the survey links to be posted on this page once they're live.
