Overview

Downtown London is in the process of developing a new Strategy and Implementation Plan (2021-2025).
The new strategy will build upon our past successes, provide a roadmap for our recovery and rebuilding efforts from the COVID-19 pandemic, and ensure that the organization undertakes initiatives and priorities that will lead to a vibrant downtown community.

Main areas for consideration as part of the Downtown London strategy will include:
-Demographic and Economic Analysis
-Best Practices and Trends
-Market Analysis
-Broad Community Engagement
-BIA Governance
-Detailed Analysis of Options and Strategic Priorities

The Strategy will establish Downtown London's goals, objectives, strategic actions, and performance measures with an accompanying implementation plan.
