2020 Downtown Vibrancy Project

The alleyway between Hunter and Simcoe streets is getting revitalized!

The Downtown Vibrancy Project launched the Hunter-to-Simcoe Street Alleyway Revitalization Project with a public design session at Lett Studios on Jan. 29.

Many local residents and business owners attended the project design session, including representatives from City of Peterborough, Lett Architects Inc, Engage Engineering, Tree House Timberworks, Three Sisters Natural Landscapes, Mortlock Construction, Basterfield and Associates, Electric City Culture Council, Public Energy, and many other downtown businesses, local artists, and community members.

The Downtown Vibrancy Project is a partnership between the DBIA and GreenUP. Now in its third year, the Downtown Vibrancy Project will feature this alleyway revitalization as a new project for 2020.

In 2018, the Downtown Vibrancy Project completed the biggest Depave Paradise project in Canada that year with the garden installation at 100 Water Street, behind the No Frills.

2019 the Downtown Vibrancy Project transformed a low-use section of the parking lot outside Euphoria Wellness Spa into a thriving green space with benches, boardwalks, and trees.
