The Town of Essex has been selected as the recipient of the 2022 Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO) Award of Excellence for the Building Initiatives Rural – Population under 100,000 category.

The award was presented in recognition of the Harrow Streetscape Project as an outstanding example of a brick-and-mortar government-led economic development initiative.

Many new features were implemented, including AODA-compliant sidewalks and crosswalks, bicycle racks to encourage active transportation, benches, landscape treatments, new street lighting, and much more.
