Upgraded infrastructure, public art and bike racks are aimed to create a better pedestrian and cyclist experience, while goals set to change parking restrictions and reduce speeds continue to be topics of conversation at board meetings. “We want to see people out and about enjoying all the community has to offer”, says Jennifer Mathieson Executive Director of the Norwood Grove BIZ. “Our goal is to create a safe, enjoyable and desirable place for visitors, residents and customers.”

La communauté d’affaires du Norwood Grove est en pleine expansion, évolution et croissance afin de répondre aux demandes des clients, des résidents et de la ville. Il suffit de jeter un regard sur la rue Marion pour voir des nouveaux bâtiments à usage mixte abritant des espaces résidentiels et commerciaux.
