A planning firm has been chosen to move the Town's Downtown Core master plan and the landscaping of Courthouse Park forward.
Its services will set the municipality back about 100 thousand dollars.
Eight firms responded to the municipality's Request-for-Proposals.
Town Planner Denise Van Amersfoort tells us five short-listed candidates were interviewed earlier in November.
She says all of the applicants were highly qualified-- but some had a more thorough understanding of the task.
The successful firm is "The Planning Partnership" from Toronto.
The Planning Partnership will work with a steering committee and meet three or four times over the coming year to formulate the plan.
The firm's 100 thousand dollar price tag was third highest of the eight bids received.
