City Council has directed staff to develop a transition plan to support residents and businesses on Dundas Street. This plan will include resources and strategies to make the name change as easy as possible for local residents and business owners. Council has also requested that staff develop a full cost recovery program to support businesses on Dundas Street. Businesses will be able to apply for support to cover costs related to exterior signage and rebranding. The transition plan and guidelines for the cost recovery program will be presented to Council for consideration in early 2023, at the same time a new name is recommended for Dundas Street.

Once a new name is approved by City Council, it will take up to one year for the name to be fully implemented. This will ensure that residents and businesses have sufficient time to prepare for the name change.
