Maintain the small-town feel throughout Main Street, both East & West

Livable Town

The Challenge

We are one of the oldest towns in Ontario and our Main Street is a living reflection of Canada’s small-town history. Part of Niagara’s Wine Route with multiple heritage landscapes, Grimsby’s Main Street is filled with unique historical features and beautiful views of the escarpment.

Today, the unique small town character of Grimsby's Main Street is in great danger. Between the Region, who wants to encourage intensification along it, and aggressive developers who disregard our Official Plan and Zoning By-Laws, Main Street's historical character and small-town feel needs strong citizens’ action to ensure that its value is preserved and passed down to future generations.

What needs to be done?

Our Town Council, freshly elected on a platform of responsible development, must ensure the following by all legal means:

  1. Official recognition of all Cultural Heritage Landscapes on Main Street, East and West within the Town of Grimsby’s official boundary limits
  2. Strict requirements for new developments to obey our Official Plan and Zoning By-Laws, and especially
    • compatibility with the rest of Main Street and keeping the character of large estate houses
    • gentler growth that favours local small business creation instead of residential intensification
    • protection of Grimsby’s specific Main Street design, with large setbacks and mature trees
  3. Protection of existing parks, green spaces and increased pedestrian safety along Main Street

Support Our Mandate
to Protect Grimsby's Main Street

There is strength in numbers. Your support is crucial to make sure that SaveMainStreet.ca is a united citizens’ voice heard by our Town Council, Planning Department and most definitely by all Developers who insist on continuing their behaviour of suggesting unreasonable, inappropriate development while threatening legal appeals.
