UPDATE June 19, 2018 – If you are unable to attend the public workshops but would still like to submit feedback or suggestions for the Main Street streetscape, please email Town of Huntsville Executive Director of Planning Services, Derrick Hammond, at [email protected] and Donna Hinde of The Planning Partnership at [email protected]
The Town of Huntsville would like to invite residents to share their thoughts on a Main Street and Kent Park redesign.
The District of Muskoka has slated Main Street construction as a project in 2019 to address below street level water and sewage infrastructure. The Town of Huntsville has the opportunity to rethink and redesign Main Street and Kent Park; so that any future construction can incorporate a new design that reflects the wants and needs of residents and visitors.
How would you like to see Main Street change or stay the same? Would you like to enhance the street trees, planters, lighting, sidewalks, benches or signage? Please share your thoughts at the upcoming Design Workshops noted below. Consultants from The Planning Partnership will lead the design of concepts for Main Street and Kent Park over a three-day consultation period.
