Planning Committee Discusses Details of Draft Downtown Master Plan and Action Strategy

Released Monday, Jan 23, 2012

This evening, the City of Greater Sudbury’s Planning Committee discussed the details of the final draft Vision, Plan and Action Strategy for Downtown Sudbury.

The Vision paints a compelling picture of what Downtown could look like 30 years from now.  It foresees Downtown as a destination and centre for celebration, beauty, creativity, innovation and urban living.

The final draft Plan and Action Strategy lays out a comprehensive series of actions and initiatives that the City and community can advance to continue to transform the core into an active, safe and diverse destination for people, businesses, not-for-profits, agencies and new investments in all forms.

The final draft represents the culmination of over 16 months of work, featuring a comprehensive examination of existing conditions, opportunities and constraints, an open and iterative community visioning exercise, and detailed planning and design work.  This work was led by the City of Greater Sudbury and Greater Sudbury Development Corporation, in partnership with a wide range of community organizations.

The final draft has been shared with the public for their review and comment.  A public input session – Speak Up Sudbury! – is being held on Tuesday, January 31, 2012, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at St. Andrews Place at 111 Larch Street, Sudbury to provide residents with an opportunity to learn more about and discuss the plan.  The final draft plan is available online at www.growdowntown.ca/blog

"The final draft represents the first physical translation of the community’s vision for Downtown.  We are looking forward to the Speak Up Sudbury! Session and hearing what people think.  We also hope that the community will discuss the draft on the project website and on the City’s Facebook page.” Jason Ferrigan, Senior Planner for the City of Greater Sudbury said.
