Distinction for Downtown Thorold Design
The Downtown Thorold Streetscape Master Plan led by GSP Group received an honourable mention during the 2014 Niagara Community Design Awards. The plan recommends improvements to accessibility, pedestrian infrastructure and consideration of a new linear open space through the downtown. The Review Committee described this project as an inspiration for other communities. The plan builds on recent private developments and considers how public space can support further investment, re-investment and intensification within the core.
