“An inclusive and sustainable community where spaces and neighbours are welcoming and connected.”
Our vision is to create an intimate, walkable community whose mixed-use diversity of commercial and residential space creates an area for everyone. We want to be friendly, green, accessible, inclusive, and collaborate with our community to make sure everyone’s voices are heard.
Creating an Urban Village by supporting our businesses and enhancing public infrastructure to facilitate a welcoming community for people and businesses.
The Village on Main has developed a set of values that all initiatives that we undertake must be:
SUSTAINABLE and ACCESSIBLE,
FRIENDLY and INCLUSIVE,
GREEN and COLLABORATIVE
In line with our key values, in early 2020, new Strategic Goals were adopted by The Village on Main that reflect our vison, mission and values.
