City of Greater Sudbury and its Partners Select Team to Design Elgin Greenway

Released Friday, Feb 22, 2013

For Immediate Release                                            
Friday, February 22, 2013

This week, the City of Greater Sudbury and its partners,  selected a team led by EDA Collaborative to develop the detailed design for the Elgin Street Greenway - one of two signature public realm improvements planned for the downtown in the next ten years.

The Elgin Street Greenway is a green, active and balanced transportation corridor that will improve the look and feel of the western edge of the core, buffer the downtown from the rail lands and connect downtown Sudbury to the Junction Creek Waterway Park, Bell Park and Science North.  

"I'm proud to see this exciting project get off the ground and the Downtown Master Plan come to life," said Mayor Marianne Matichuk. "This is the start of what I'm sure will be a number of exciting projects coming downtown in  the coming years."

Connecting downtown Sudbury to the surrounding community was a vital and integral part of The City of Greater Sudbury's Downtown Master Plan and Action Strategy.

In April 2012, City of Greater Sudbury Council endorsed the Downtown Master Plan and Action Strategy which was created to establish a blueprint set  to transform the core into an active, safe and diverse destination for people, businesses, not-for-profits, agencies and new investments in all forms.

"An enormous amount of work took place to create the Downtown Master Plan, "Bill Lautenbach, General Manager of Growth & Development for the City of Greater Sudbury said. "We are now looking forward to taking everything we learned and create the vision we assembled. This is one more step in a marathon of steps that will transform our downtown into the best downtown in Northern Ontario."

Construction on parts of the Greenway is set to begin within a year.

The Elgin Greenway Detailed Design Project will be led and managed by the City of Greater Sudbury in partnership with the Greater Sudbury Development Corporation, Rainbow Routes Association, Downtown Sudbury Business Improvement Area and Downtown Village Development Corporation.   Funding is provided  in part by City of Greater Sudbury, The Greater Sudbury Development Corporation, the Ministry of Tourism and Downtown Sudbury Business Improvement Area.
