When did the planning for this project begin?

Ina Lou and Wayne Brownlee approached Biggar in 2019 with a generous offer to give back to the community they were raised in. A committee of community members was assembled in 2020 to inform development of a concept plan to revitalize Biggar based on residents' wishes.

Concepts developed by landscape architecture firm Crosby Hanna & Associates were shared at community open houses in January 2021 outlining a major revitalization of Main Street and the former CN grounds. Final plans incorporating community feedback were approved by Council in April 2021.
