Streetscape Timing Update

Dear BIA members,

The Town of Oakville has provided this update on the timing and lines of communication regarding the streetscape work to begin next year. 

It notes that during the first phase, April - November 2019, Lakeshore Rd. from Navy to Dunn will be closed to vehicle traffic.  Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the project.

Mary Vallee will be delivering these flyers this week to those businesses in the first phase.

We were pleased to introduce you to Mary Vallee, Senior Liaison and Communications Advisor, Downtown Projects, Strategy Policy & Communications, at the AGM this year.  Along with the BIA Office, Mary will be your 'go to' resource for all things related to the streetscape project.  Mary has an impressive resume of supporting similar projects, including the recent Union Station construction work.  From our talks with other districts that have gone through similar projects, having this type of liaison was a universal theme they all shared as a key mitigation initiative.  The BIA looks forward to working with Mary; we know she will be a valuable resource.  For those who have not yet met Mary and wish to do so, please see the attached form regarding ways she may be reached (either by email or at the Project Office, located in the former Post Office on Church).

If you have any questions feel free to contact the BIA office at, or Mary Vallee at

Thank you,

Sharlene Plewman
