The Downtown Waterfront Master Plan capitalizes on ways to improve connections between the downtown and the waterfront. By reflecting North Bay's Indigenous history in meaningful ways and creating new centres of activity (both indoors and outdoors), a vibrant downtown & waterfront can be maintained year round.
