Queen Street Shutdown

Board Meeting: June 13 – 5:30pm

City Staff are set to Examine Street Closure from East to Gore on Sunny, Summer Days:

On June 26th, City Council approved a Matthew Shoemaker resolution and will be asking city council to “examine the possibility of closing Queen Street from East Street to Gore Street to traffic on Friday and/or Saturday nights from Victoria Day to Labour Day each year in an effort to both encourage active use of the downtown space and to increase events downtown.”

As Sootoday reports, the initiative has gained downtown business support!

I can tell you that about 75 per cent of our membership thinks that being closed in some capacity during the weekend between May and October is a good idea …I think it’s a great idea and I’m looking forward to figuring out the best possible schedule for it.
