Downtown North Sydney Revitalization Plan

Façade and Streetscape improvements, capital projects, green space development, and so much more.

This study was commissioned by the North Sydney Business Improvement and Development Association (BIDA), Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC), Cape Breton County Economic Development Authority (CBCEDA), Nova Scotia Economic Development (NSED) and the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM).The purpose of the study is to create a Revitalization Design Document (RDD) for the municipality’s downtown district of Commercial/Queen Streets between Regent Street and Pleasant Street and consists of developing phased-in implementation for light infrastructure investment in the area.

The focus and driving force of this project is based on community participation to contribute to the prosperity and growth of its economic sector: BIDA began the North Sydney revitalization program with help from the community in September of 2001.
