Great cities strategically focus on their best opportunities for building a strong local economy.
Downtown renewal has emerged as a strong pillar in Guelph’s economic development strategy. A program designed to create a positive environment for investment has attracted an unprecedented >$85 million in private sector investment – with more on the way.
By more than doubling Guelph’s downtown assessment we will strengthen the city’s financial position and help fund quality of life investments – like a new main library and a south end community centre.
Great cities have vibrant downtowns.
