Public Session Reminder: Tom Davies Square Courtyard Redesign Concepts

Feb 16, 2016

For Immediate Release
Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Residents are reminded to attend a public session on Thursday, February 18, 2016, to view and comment on three concepts for the Tom Davies Square Courtyard Redesign.

These concepts are based on ideas collected during the public input period in January 2016. Join us from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Tom Davies Square Foyer to view and hear more about the designs, share your comments, and ask questions. If you are unable to attend, the three design concepts will be available online beginning February 18, and will be open for comment until February 26. For a paper copy, please visit a Citizen Service Centre near you.

Tom Davies Square is located in downtown Sudbury and is home to Council Chamber and municipal services and offices. It is the city’s most visible civic space, and as such, it is important that its grounds reflect the vision of the community. The Downtown Sudbury Master Plan Tom Davies Square Redesign project envisions the courtyard as an attractive and multifunctional public space, with an environmentally-friendly design.

The Courtyard is scheduled to undergo repairs, and this presents the perfect opportunity to complete the landscape redesign project of the Master Plan. The Courtyard is located directly above an underground parking garage and therefore there are weight restrictions in place for the space.
