THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay is developing a new urban vision. Now it is your turn to share your thoughts on the urban design vision for Thunder Bay. You are invited to ‘walk’ the new Waterfront Image Route through a series of drawings and provide us with feedback on Wednesday, Jan. 15 from 5 – 8 pm at Mariners Hall at Prince Arthur’s Landing.

The City of Thunder Bay and Brook McIlroy are preparing an Image Route Vision for portions of Simpson Street, Fort William Road, Water and Cumberland Streets.

The purpose of this study is to establish Urban Design Principles and Guidelines that will apply generally across the City, including detailed streetscape designs for each of the key image routes, including:

  • Red River Road;
  • Arthur Street; and,
  • May Street, Memorial Avenue and Algoma Street.

The Urban Design Guidelines will improve the quality of the City’s built environment consistent with the Clean Green and Beautiful Initiative and the City’s Official Plan. They will assist developers, architects, landscape architects, urban designers and professional planners in making informed decisions when developing site plan applications.

The Urban Design Guidelines will balance the desire for City-wide design quality with the unique elements that are significant to each Image Route, and within each neighbourhood and business area. The detailed streetscape designs will guide future Municipal work within the road right-of-ways on each of the Image Routes.
