  2. 2. Leap of faith. The problem is complex. We can do something different.
  3. 3. Teeny Tiny Places are not pigs and turds!
  4. 4. We are missing the forest through the trees. How things look matters! How things work matters! Services shape how things look and work.
  5. 5. historic facades removed lower density larger yards/frontage gaps Does not support a walkable core with a positive ‘enclosed’ aesthetic - an ingredient in a strong ‘Main St.’ sense of place.
  6. 6. ‘great places’ support tourism generate attachment/meaning return visitors/becoming a ‘destination’ ‘great places’ support quality of life for residents
  7. 7. Second-storey apartments Variety of non-residential offerings Patios and courtyards, rear parking, delivery and loading, alley access etc.
  8. 8. Services support community flexibility and adaptability Keeping up with market trends and demands
  9. 9. We need to think differently about how we sustainably address servicing in small villages.
  10. 10. We have 200 plus years of history in many villages. Our collective social investment and the value villages offer cannot be abandoned. Think - rural Ontario in the next 100 years How do we sustainably grow/remain viable?
