Village Commercial Core Improvement Plan

Lantzville Road Streetscape Concept Design


The Lantzville Commercial Core Revitalization Project started in 2013/ 2014 with the preparation of a Village Commercial Core Improvement Plan (the Plan) to establish a vision to create a functional, safe and visually attractive commercial core area, extending from Caillet Road to Tweedhope. Council endorsed the Plan in 2019 as the first step to fulfill one of the fundamental goals of the Official Community Plan: Strengthen the Village Primary Commercial Core. Following engagement with businesses and the community in 2019, a design was created.

Village Commercial Core Improvement Plan - November 4, 2014 - Endorsed by Council January 28, 2019

The District has created a concept design for Lantzville Road within the Village Core. This project is identified in the Village Commercial Core Improvement Plan and is aimed at providing safe walking and cycling connections, managing onstreet parking, and enhancing the aesthetics of the Village with the addition of street trees, landscaping and lamp standards.
