After the W5 CTV program aired called Steel Town Down about the Sault’s opioid crisis, within which Jamestown was highlighted, council is going to discuss tonight possible rejuvenation of that neighbourhood.
This is also coming after Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre’s GIS department has been saying for a number of years that there is a lack of parks and outdoor recreation activities in Jamestown.
So the planning department with help from the Innovation Centre’s GIS department may be requested by council tonight to look at this revitalization, namely:
- possible expansion of Anna Marinelli Park;
- conversion of unused green space in the area for recreational use; and an examination of Jamestown in how best to use its public spaces
