Walkerville Districting Plan

Initiatives, Improvements, Projects, and Opportunities Ideas Survey

On December 3, 2019 Brook McIlroy and the City of Windsor hosted a Visioning Workshop to hear directly from the people who know Walkerville best about how they envision the neighbourhood evolving over the next 2, 5, 10, and 20 years.

Through a series of interactive exercises, a number of Initiatives, Improvements, Projects, and Opportunities (IIPOs) emerged that attendees felt could make Walkerville an even more beautiful, connected, safe, walkable, and vibrant place to live, work, and play.

As part of the second phase of the project, an online survey has been developed and provides opportunities for more detailed feedback on ten IIPOs that have been identified.

The feedback provided here will inform the prioritization and design of the final Initiatives, Improvements, Projects, and Opportunities that will be included in the Walkerville Districting Plan.

The Districting Plan for Walkerville's historic neighbourhood is a major revitalization opportunity for Windsor and an important precedent for undertaking similar City Districting Plan projects. Leveraging the urban setting through well managed change will promote vitality in the district and the surrounding city fabric including neighbourhoods, the waterfront and downtown. (BrookMcIlroy)
