Join us in the next step in creating our new Official Plan.

Wednesday May 15, 2019 at Sandbox Centre, 24 Maple Ave, 2nd Floor, Downtown Barrie

The City needs your feedback to help shape the look and feel of Barrie over the next 20 years. Using a mix of interactive discussions and informative videos, City staff will look for your feedback on different themes and explore ideas to solve the challenges of planning a growing city. Input collected during this event will be used to help develop land-use policy options around community priorities, and will be presented to Council at a later date.

City Planning staff will show videos and facilitate conversations around the following key themes:
Growth Pressures
Mobility
Resiliency
Density
Employment
Public Spaces
Housing

During the videos and discussions, participants can use their smartphones to answer questions and give feedback while viewing responses all in real-time. These live visualizations create a fun and interactive experience for the audience. Participants are encouraged to arrive with their smartphones fully charged. Please note that you you can still participate and provide feedback if you do not have a smartphone.

This event is open to the public and we encourage you to RSVP to newbarrieop@barrie.ca
