Chapleau Holding Open House on Downtown Revitalization

Chapleau residents have a chance tonight to give input on plans for downtown revitalization.

The Township's holding an open house to review and discuss AECOM's conceptual plans for the project, which were presented to Chapleau Town Council last month, as explained by Mayor Michael Levesque after the February 11th meeting.

At the time, Mayor Levesque said the next step is applying for grants to apply the plan, which would also include some beautification in addition to the infrastructure work.

Shortly after that, FedNor announced $120,000 to help the Township "contract the professional services required to undertake planning, design, and engineering activities to support capital infrastructure upgrades to its downtown core", including developing detailed designs and engineering schematics, construction cost estimates, and the creation of a capital funding strategy.

The open house will be held from 4 to 8 pm in the Community Hall at 4 Maple Street.
