Placemaking Survey: Help Us Make Downtown More Vibrant

Help us make Downtown Abbotsford more vibrant through placemaking.


The Abbotsford Downtown Business Association (ADBA) is creating a Placemaking and Event Strategy for Downtown Abbotsford. Over the next month we want to hear from you-our property owners, merchants, community leaders, and other interested partners.

Through your input, we hope to understand how existing streets and sidewalks, and local events are used by businesses and the community. Your local expertise will also help us identify opportunities to improve and enhance the vibrancy of downtown.

What is Placemaking?

What do we mean by placemaking? Placemaking includes all of the special elements in downtown that make it unique. Things like our beautiful murals, local events,creative benches, the box park, the design of business storefronts, and the actual businesses that all contribute to a sense of place in our downtown. Our placemaking strategy will build upon the existing features that make Downtown Abbotsford what itis today. And so we will be looking for opportunities to integrate some of the amazing design features in our area, and build upon these to create an even strongerbrand and sense of place that attracts visitors.
