Have your say. Help shape your community.

The City of Windsor periodically conducts surveys as a means of soliciting ideas and opinions from residents, so we can better serve the community as a whole.

Check back often to see if a new survey is ready for your input.

Riverfront Festival Plaza Finalization Project

Currently, the Festival Plaza site consists of a large paved area left over from the site's previous use as a parking lot. The site hosts a variety of events through the summer months but is generally vacant for the majority of the year. The concept plan presented at the public meeting held on February 15, 2018 intends to create a site plan that will function for more than just large events, providing spaces that can be enjoyed all year long.

Streetcar #351 Restoration Project

The City of Windsor recently acquired a piece of history: the question now is how best to show it off? Streetcar #351, built in 1918 in Cincinnati, Ohio and operated here in Windsor, Ontario is now being restored to its original glory. And while that work is being done, City officials are planning where to locate the finished streetcar, what potential it has for usage and what amenities would be best to accompany it.

Stories of Sandwich Public Survey

Be a part of history ... Sandwich Town is getting a grand new entrance as the City of Windsor moves forward with the creation and installation of an arch over Sandwich Street at the eastern entrance to one of Windsor’s most historic neighbourhoods. This project will include 14 Stories of Sandwich on plaques at the limestone bases of the arch. One plaque will comment on the Tecumseh Brock Monument located in the roundabout. One plaque will comment on the archaeology that took place during the construction of the roundabout. The stories on the remaining 12 plaques will be determined through online selection of the top stories identified in a Public Survey. These stories are intended to share some of the many heritage Stories that have contributed to the fabric of what Sandwich Town is today.

Submissions have been received and it is now time to vote to identify the top Stories. The Stories of Sandwich submissions tell of the historic buildings and businesses, the people, and the public spaces located within Sandwich Town. This arch is a part of the Legacy Projects under the Celebrating 2017 Initiative marking our city’s 125th anniversary of incorporation, and the 150th anniversary of Ontario and Canada. Once complete, the arch will complement the stunning new sculpture and monument to Chief Tecumseh and General Brock that will be located in a new roundabout where Sandwich Street merges with University Avenue.
