Let’s get talking!
Reimagine Peterborough is a community initiative seeking a transformative new vision for Peterborough.
Together we hope to inspire and contribute to a wider conversation on public engagement and community planning. Let’s improve our urban planning processes for addressing the complex challenges and amazing opportunities of the 21st century!
City-making today is about so much more than just sewers and roads: it is about creating thriving, diverse and sustainable places to live, move, work, play — and prosper.
Reimagine Peterborough is a movement to invite the incredible potential within our city — to come together to create, share, and engage on a city plan for a brighter future.
A complete rewrite of the city’s guiding document, the Official Plan, is now underway for the first time since 1981. The new plan will set the direction for our neighbourhoods, parks, playgrounds, streets, shopping and taxes for the next 20 years. And here’s the kicker — it’s legally binding!
Reimagine Peterborough is inviting and collecting ideas that, taken together, will help City Hall to create a visionary way forward for our City. What kind of future do you want for Peterborough? What do you like, and what would you change?

In 2011, the City collected comments and ideas from citizens through the Plan It Peterborough process to support the Official Plan Review. The input is presented in this 2013 City report under 5 planning themes.
Our Suggested 6th Theme
is a renewal of the process by which the City and we as citizens, engage in conversations about the future of Peterborough.
