South Algonquin Township wants your ideas for a renewed downtown Whitney.

The Township is partnering with the South Algonquin Business Association to compile a list of projects to explore. Council has limited the list to seven items and wants the public’s input to choose which one is the most popular. The township says it received a grant from the province in 2018 to help complete revitalization projects.

Among the ideas are public maps and way-finding stations, electric car charging stations, extra benches, checker boards or musical instruments in parks, street art and large photo frames, or expanding the village market. A expanded description of each of the items is found on the forms. The public is asked to fill out as much of the form as possible and deliver it to the Whitney or Madawaska Valley Public Libraries, delivered to the township offices, or to email it to

The full questionnaire can be found here. The deadline to submit is August 12th
