Windsor begins work to transform several key districts

Ontario Construction News staff writer

The City of Windsor last week unveiled a plan to complete Theming and Districting Studies in key neighbourhoods.

In 2021, the City of Windsor undertook the first Theming and Districting Study for Historic Walkerville and now the process is expanded across five more community districts – Sandwich Towne, Downtown Windsor, Ford City, Olde Riverside, and Wyandotte Town Centre.

“Highlighting the rich history and diversity of the former towns that make up Windsor and their BIAs is exciting,” said Councillor Jo-Anne Gignac.

“I am so excited to help facilitate this next step in theming our neighbourhoods! Welcome to Riverside… home of the Peace Fountain, Peche Island, Lakeview Park Marina, Windsor Yacht Club and kayak launch, WFCU Centre arena, Farrow Riverside Miracle Park and Diamond, Ganatchio Trail and Motor City Clairview Bikeway Trail.”

The planning department will develop a conceptual plan, including a background study to identify revitalization opportunities in these areas. Residents and businesses will be able to provide feedback on the design and vision to create unique public spaces.

The third and final phase will include an open house where designs will be presented before receiving final approval at Windsor council.

More information will be shared in the coming weeks through the City of Windsor’s Facebook page and website.

“The City of Windsor in 1858 brought together several municipalities and districts that shape who we are today,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Through the development of these five Theming and Districting Reports, we can help ensure the legacy of our history, culture, and people continues.”
