Consultation for this project is now closed (it was open from June 1st-15th). Thank you to all who provided feedback, it is truly appreciated.


The County in partnership with the Picton BIA, Bloomfield Area Business Association(BABA) and Wellington District Business Improvement Association (WDBIA) are seeking public and business input on ways to expand outdoor areas in our downtowns. This is in an effort to support physical distancing measures in the coming months.

As retail and hospitality businesses re-open to serve the public, new plans are needed to ensure the safety of residents, visitors, business owners and employees.

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Pedestrian traffic control & flow ideas
  • Possible designated outdoor retail space areas
  • Possible designated outdoor patio/picnic table areas
  • Adapting municipally owned park & green space areas
  • Designated curb-side pickup parking spots
  • Areas that are need to be retained for clientele parking

This web page is dedicated to inform the public of this initiative and to seek feedback and these ideas, and to determine appropriate locations within our towns for these measures.

Below is a map tool that allows you to pin the area you think we should have physical distancing. Identify locations where these measures may be appropriate by following the instructions below. In addition, the second tab includes an 'Ideas Wall' where you can share physical distancing ideas.
