BIA Member Meeting
Material Selection for Streetscape Project (Downtown Plan)

Dear BIA members,

The Town of Oakville would like your feedback on the proposed options for materials and furnishings (benches, lamp posts, garbage bins, etc) for the new streetscape (in 2015, based on feedback from BIA members and the public, a 'contemporary' theme was selected; now is the opportunity to refine the material selection).

The Town will be holding a BIA Member meeting as well as a public meeting, dates listed below.  You are invited to attend whichever time best suits your schedule.  The meetings are being held at town hall due to the difficulty of moving the large items around.  If you are not able to attend either meeting, you will be able to view and comment on the materials online (details below).

Tell us what you think!
Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape Project
After hearing from you through the Downtown Transportation Study, the town chose a contemporary theme for the downtown streetscape design.
 
Now it’s time to choose the actual materials and furnishings.
This is an important step in the street design process and we want to hear from you.
 
We’d like to get your opinion on two contemporary design palettes.
 
Some sample streetscape materials and furnishings such as pavers, benches, bike rings, recycling stations, and lights will be on display for viewing and comment. These materials will also be used going forward as other streets in Downtown Oakville are reconstructed.
