The Uxbridge Downtown Revitalization project (#myuxbridgedowntown) was launched in August of 2020 to develop a cohesive long-term vision for the downtown area.  The Project will deliver a Strategic Plan and an Action Plan that will focus on the longer-term economic development and social well-being of the downtown. The project is made possible with a partnership between the Township of Uxbridge, the Region of Durham, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs and the Uxbridge Business Improvement Area (BIA).

The project objective is to renew and improve the economic, physical and social well-being of Uxbridge’s town centre by:

  • Strengthening local business and encouraging investment by property owners;
  • Creating enjoyable public streets and spaces animated by a variety of creative and civic activities; and,
  • Providing work and living opportunities that fulfil people’s needs across a spectrum of ages and interests.

The Downtown Revitalization Plan will provide Council and staff with a strategic plan to guide future decisions, actions and investment that will improve the historic downtown area for residents, business owners and visitors.

About the Project

#myuxbridgedowntown Study Area

The Downtown Revitalization Program area has been drawn to include key natural features of the Downtown core such as parks, trails, streams, and other naturalized areas. The area also captures the key business corridor and major road network feeding the downtown as well as key tourist locations.

The study area will be used to determine which business and property owners will be surveyed, and where customer and street surveys will be conducted.
