What I Would LIke to See

As part of the Planners on the Street event, a “What I would Like to See Here” tool was used to stimulate thinking about what types of businesses might be desirable and even viable on Main Street. Attendees were given an opportunity to take pre-printed post-it notes, mark on them what type of business they would like to see on the street and place the stickers on the windows of vacant businesses. Most of those who participated were pupils of Mrs. Purdy’s Grade 6 class, while a few others also contributed to the following list of ideas compiled from the various stickers.
