City of Barrie: Mayor Lehman
With the housing affordability crisis and now COVID-19, more and more people are looking beyond Toronto and the GTA for a place to call home. As part of this, Barrie is maturing and setting the stage for what it will be in the future. A significant amount of the city’s growth is being directed through intensification and Barrie’s Urban Growth Centre (UGC) is playing a key part.
Join us for a candid discussion on the evolving future of Barrie, and the role the UGC will continue to play in helping transform Barrie into a destination. We will discuss the city’s growth from not just a planning and economic lens, but a cultural and social one, too.
