Schomberg Main Street Downtown Revitalization
Schomberg Main Street business was in decline, with many businesses being converted to street level residential. King Township received an OMFRA grant in 2018 for a 2 year project to develop and implement a revitalization strategy for Schomberg.
The project involved a resident survey, business survey and trade area analysis. Working with businesses & 7 community groups, a vision and core strategy was articulated and supported by Council. The strategy is entering its implementation phase in 2019.
Since the beginning of the project, 5 new businesses have opened on Main Street, including a wine bar and an art gallery. Businesses and community groups have a sense of optimism about their future, and are engaged in bringing the strategy to life in 2019.
