Williamsville Main Street Study

The Planning Committee approved the undertaking of this study at its September 16 meeting, to be approved by City Council. Once hired, the consultants will be examining Princess Street between Division and Bath Road and speaking with area residents and business owners for input on what we want to see happen.  It is expected to begin before the end of this year.

This is an exciting prospect, and something we have been talking about and asking for. For more information see:
