Market Precinct Task Force

Task Force

On March 22, 2021, Barrie City Council approved a motion that included the establishment of a Market Precinct Task Force. ​

Revitalizing the west end of Downtown Barrie is an urgent priority for City Council. The key mandate of the Market Precinct Task Force was to report to General Committee with a plan for investments in the economy and in public spaces in the west end of Downtown Barrie.

On February 14, 2022, Council endorsed in principle the concept of a Barrie Bayside Market Area centered around the conversion of the existing transit terminal on Maple Avenue to a year-round market and the construction of a new building nearby to house the Barrie Farmers' Market.
