Planning underway to enhance the Muskoka Wharf

Gravenhurst | by Ian MacLennan  
Mayor says the Muskoka Wharf has not fulfilled its original vision to be a signature destination for the region.

A  year-long revitalization plan for the Muskoka Wharf in Gravenhurst is in the works.

Mayor Paul Kelly says the Wharf has not fulfilled its original vision to become a signature destination for the region,  noting the downtown core has benefited from ongoing revatilization efforts and now it's time to use a similar approach to improve the Wharf.

A Wharf Revitalization Coordinator will develop a strategic plan for improvements by engaging in a consultation process this fall.

Three years of feedback from an Annual Business Review Survey found a higher turnover of businesses located at the Wharf, a feeling of disconnect from the downtown, less business reinvestment, among other things.
