    The Town Square closed Main Street between Front Avenue and Second Avenue for ten weeks between June and September.

    The City of Whitehorse is looking for public input about the Main Street town square. In a social media post Friday Morning, the municipality shared a link to an online survey to let residents share their thoughts on the project.

    The survey takes approximately ten minutes to complete, and asks about how attendees travelled to the town square, whether they went elsewhere in the downtown area afterwards, and more specific concerns with events and amenities. It also asks for input in future locations for the project, if it were to be renewed.

    Businesses along the pedestrian area of this year’s Town Square have also been invited to provide more in-depth feedback by arranging a meeting with City of Whitehorse Economic Development Coordinator Stephanie Chevalier.

    Shortly before the Main Street town square closed for the season, Chevalier said that she wants to know how the town square worked and how it could be improved for pedestrians, motorists, and business owners. She also recognized that this would take time and careful consideration of the information gathered by this survey.

    The survey can be completed through this link:

    The link to the Main Street town square exit survey will also be available through the City of Whitehorse Facebook page until October 1.
