Hello time traveller!!

The Old Riverside Business Improvement Association is hoping for some new tender, loving care for the neighbourhood.
The BIA says the last beautification project took place over 20 years ago and is planning to be recognized for its “floral vegetation and artwork” through a new project.
The BIA intends to update street banners which have become faded over the years, a gateway marker in the median and plans to commission three sculptures as part of the mariner theme of the BIA.
The sculptures will be produced through a call to artists and are planned to be juried by the BIA and City administrators.
Two of the sculptures will be located at the entrances to the BIA between Jefferson and Thompson and a third will be placed elsewhere. Further improvements include repairing benches and garbage cans. The project is estimated to cost $150,000 and be funded by City grant programs and loans.
The project has yet to be discussed by Council Committees and Windsor City Council.
