Schomberg Main Street Downtown Revitalization

The Challenge

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 Scope

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.

The Impact

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.
