Millbrook Revitalization

In July 2012, the Municipal Revitalization and Heritage Advisory Committee (MRHAC) kicked off the Downtown Millbrook Revitalization Project. Surveys, market threshold analysis, focus groups, business inventories and community design workshops were all methods used to gain community feedback on revitalization. These methods were used to gain a better understanding of the positives and negatives of Downtown Millbrook, from a community perspective. This information helped identify the current needs for improvement while creating future opportunities for improvement.
