Brantford's City Council and its citizens are committed to downtown Brantford.
Planning in support of a cohesive long-term vision will continue to strengthen and ensure the connection between the municipality and the post-secondary sector. The City of Brantford developed a Downtown Masterplan approved by Council in 2008, a Municipal Cultural Plan in 2007 and an Economic Development Strategy adopted in 2010 - which all have an impact on downtown Brantford. In tandem, Wilfrid Laurier developed a Campus Master Plan in 2010 that supports the direction of Council and continues to build on the revitalization of downtown Brantford. By ensuring the visions remain connected, effective, strategic growth is achievable.
