Placemaking is a community-centered approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. The CWNA Placemaking Committee works to increase and enhance our parks and public art and improve street safety. A number of the CWNA's placemaking goals are in alliance with the City's North Downtown Yonge Urban Design Guidelines and Downtown Parks and Public Realm Plan.
The CWNA Placemaking Committee has three main priorities:
The Lane Naming Project
One of the CWNA's placemaking projects is to identify and name previously nameless alleys in the neighourhood. So far eleven lanes have been named.
Check out the Church Wellesley Interactive Map to learn about plans to improve existing parks and add future parkland to our neighbourhood. One of our ongoing placemaking projects is caring for the Wellesley Street planters.
