The idea for the Downtown Ajax of the Future is:

  • Active - a walking and cyclist friendly, transit-focused environment with linked sidewalks.
  • Livable - home to a wide mix of land uses that provides a place to live, work, shop, eat and enjoy a wide variety of active uses.
  • Innovative - building new and creative ideas in all aspects of planning, design, and (re)development.
  • Vibrant - a high quality public area with urban squares and gathering places for social, community and cultural activities for residents and tourists.
  • Eco-focused - encourages development that improves the overall environmental quality of the Town of Ajax and minimizes environmental impacts.

Development activity that occurs within this important district will be designed with these principles in mind. With every act, Downtown Ajax is becoming more and more ALIVE! - We invite you to be part of it!
