Ripley Outdoor Plaza

The Township of Huron-Kinloss is exploring the possibility of constructing an outdoor plaza at the corner of Jessie St. and Huron St. beside the Fire Hall. A design plan for the plaza is available in the image library.

An outdoor plaza is a central gathering place for a community that acts as a foundation for revitalization of a downtown area. Just imagine a place in downtown Ripley where entertainment, farmer's markets, art shows, street vendors and other programming exist centrally in the downtown. Plazas encourage private investment and development and provide a "third living space" for the community, somewhere to just hang out together.

Public Plazas can take many different forms, this project page has been designed as a way to ask the community what they want the space to look like, feel like and be used for. We will be engaging with service clubs and other groups in Ripley to get a full picture of what the community needs and wants but encourage everyone to contribute to this project through our ideas tool.

The photo library provides some insight into how outdoor plaza's are used by other communities.
