The BR&E process in Fenelon Falls led to a downtown revitalization project also including Coboconk, Lindsay and Omemee. All four communities provided action plans in 2017 that resulted in the City of Kawartha Lakes forming a Downtown Revitalization Committee of Council to coordinate implementation in each community. Fenelon Forward is facilitating community consultation for the revitalization project in Fenelon Falls.
Contacts for downtown revitalization:
Fenelon Forward was formed six years ago to advocate for improvements in Fenelon Falls, initially as a committee of the Chamber of Commerce. Fenelon Forward partnered with the Chamber and City of Kawartha Lakes in the Business Retention & Expansion project.
- Launching the Town Crier online newsletter
- Promoting infrastructure improvements for growth (waste water treatment, roads and sidewalks) and downtown revitalization.
- There also was active participation in the City’s official plan amendment preparation.
Fenelon Forward organizes public discussions and consultations about issues and improvements in Fenelon Falls, and undertakes surveys or other fact-finding activities
