What Do You Think Oakville's Towne Square Should Look Like?
Downtown Oakville’s Towne Square is a very small but unique space.
And it’s time to talk rehabilitation.
A public meeting is taking place next week to do just that.
In 2014, as part of the Downtown Streetscape Project, three preliminary concepts were developed for the space, however, there was no consensus on any of the plans.
Council agreed to defer final design of Towne Square.
The town received budget funding in 2017 to begin the design process for the rehabilitation of Towne Square.
Now, plans are in place to re-initiate public consultation with key stakeholders within the downtown BIA and develop an approved design that can be constructed in 2019, concurrent with the first phase of Lakeshore Rd. reconstruction (from Navy to Dunn).
Towne Square falls within the parks and open space inventory.
The town has recently retained the services of NAK Design to facilitate designs for Towne Square but no contractors have been lined up at this time.
Towne Square happens to be surrounded by private businesses and condominium properties, but is a common image that comes to mind when people are asked to think of downtown.
The meeting is being held on Thursday, June 28 from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the Oakville Club (56 Water St.).
