City asking for public input on downtown waterfront through online survey

NORTH BAY, ON – July 27, 2016 – After a very successful public consultation session in June, the City of North Bay is inviting further feedback and ideas from the community about the future of the City’s downtown waterfront.

“We had a great turnout for our first meeting and some really fantastic, constructive input from the residents that were in attendance,” said Beverley Hillier, Manager - Planning Services with the City of North Bay.  “We want to keep that momentum going and engage residents further, especially those who were unable to join us at our initial public session.”

The City has launched an electronic citizen survey on their website,  The survey will be available until Friday, August 19, 2016.  In addition, the planning department will be onsite at the North Bay Farmers’ Market (in front of the Discovery North Bay Museum) on Wednesday, August 17 to solicit input.

A summary of the feedback and ideas generated during the first public consultation session are also now available on the City’s website.

The Downtown Waterfront Master Plan is a 10-month exercise that the City of North Bay, in conjunction with BrookMcIlroy, is undertaking to help shape new development and civic improvements for the downtown waterfront area.
