Western Hill Neighbourhood Revitalization
SGL Planning & Design Inc. and Joseph Bogdan Associates Inc. completed an intensification and revitalization study for the Western Hill Neighbourhood of St. Catharines. The Study made recommendations for improvements to this neighbourhood, including short and long-term scenarios for street related intensification and streetscape improvements, a public square, new infill development, consolidated rear parking lots, roadway and circulation improvements.
Streetscape, views, gateway and trail connection improvements were also part of the study. Key issues of the study were to implement the smart growth principles of Niagara Region and determining how to improve this signature western gateway of the City.
