Integrated Streets – Imagine

Urban Design


Imagine your village, in Ontario, where drivers act like down-easterners, stopping for you, the pedestrian.

Imagine a unique environment that allows you to slow traffic, yet allowing motorized vehicles into your space.

Imagine the creative environment that exists in an open space framed by heritage architecture and dotted with art and street furnishings.

That is the pedestrian street that could be in Kleinburg with foresight and IMAGINE-ation.
