Downtown Guelph Open House: Streetscape, Built Form and St. George’s Square – June 2nd

DGBA press release.

Council adopted the Downtown Secondary Plan (DSP) in 2012, which anticipates more residents and businesses Downtown. Based on this, the City is updating the Downtown Streetscape Manual (previously called the Downtown Public Realm Manual, 2001) and the Downtown Built Form Standards (previously called the Downtown Private Realm Manual, 2001).

Join the conversation

You are invited to participate in an upcoming open house to provide input to help improve Downtown Guelph’s streets and public spaces (Downtown Streetscape Manual), St. George’s Square (St. George’s Square Concept Plan), and private buildings (Downtown Built Form Standards).
