Sarnia Launches Community Improvement Plan

Sarnia, ON — The city of Sarnia is looking for community help in reviewing and updating its Community Improvement Plans. The goals of the project are affordable housing, neighborhood and downtown revitalization, and public space improvements.

The plan will help target public investments to spur private investment. The investments are intended to enhance the quality of the public realm while creating a focus for community activities. There are opportunities for addressing beautification along the waterfront along with identifying changes needed pertaining to land use, zoning, and other policies.

The three commercial areas that the Plan will focus on are Downtown Sarnia, Mitton Village, and Northgate. There is a schedule of events that involve the public, kicking off on July 7th with a public engagement program. Residents, business owners, community groups, and others are invited to sign up for the program.

The website has more information. The project is being led by Eric Hyatt, Planner with the City of Sarnia and The Planning Partnership/MDB Insight.
