Members of Council and members of Senior Management have been meeting regularly over the last year to review parking, traffic flow, and construction requirements with respect to sidewalks and roadway in the Lowertown area, specifically west of Main Street and south of St. Lawrence Street.

To revitalize the Lowertown area west of Main Street, and south of St. Lawrence Street to improve traffic flow, increase on-street parking, and improve pedestrian infrastructure (sidewalks) for residents and visitors.
