Welcome to the City of Brantford's Downtown Revitalization website.
Brantford's City Council and its citizens are committed to Downtown Brantford.
NEW: The City of Brantford is developing a Downtown Brantford Streetscape Design Plan, click to find out more.
In 2008 City Council approved the Downtown Master Plan, which in 2009 won the OPPI Award for Planning Excellence.
The implementation of the Downtown Master Plan achieved significant progress in 2009. A number of projects or phases were completed by year-end. Three of the largest initiatives undertaken in 2009 are as follows:
- Expropriation by the City of Brantford of 41 buildings on the south-side of Colborne Street
- Colborne Street and Dalhousie Street Two-Way Street Conversion Class Environmental Assessment
- Transit Terminal and Parking Structure Feasibility Study
For a more detailed overview of revitalization activity in 2009 please see Downtown Master Plan- Implementation update 2009.
The redevelopment of the South Side of Colborne Street is on-going. For Council reports and summaries of the public workshop held in February 2011, please click on the "Reports" section in the right hand menu of this page.
