A Rejuvenated Downtown Galt Streetscaping Plan

On Wednesday January  13, 2010, Downtown Cambridge Business Improvement (BIA) Association meeting, unveiled streetscaping plans were to make Main Street more attractive for investors and pedestrians.

In an interview, city planning commissioner Janet Babcock said Cambridge has submitted a $750,000 funding application to the Southern Ontario Development Agency (SODA). The agency has been provided with $1 billion over five years from FedDev Ontario – part of the federal government’s economic stimulus package.

Should the city’s application be approved, the project has to be completed by March 2011. The city will also split the cost of the project with the federal government.

Hopefully we will see a resurgence much like that of Kitchener and Waterloo’s vibrant downtowns. We need some exciting nightlife in the downtown core. PLEASE!
