The community-wide campaign, known as Bronte Forward! gave residents and visitors alike the opportunity to share what matters most when it comes to creating a thriving waterfront community that is both a cherished destination and a place that people can call home.  

Bronte Forward! was conceived and led by the Bronte BIA with community engagement support by 8 80 Cities. Through the engagement process, we sought to capture a collective community vision of Bronte at its very best. To capture this vision we held interviews, focus groups, workshops and a survey with 800 respondents. The results of this community engagement have been distilled in our Vision document that we would like to share with you today! 

The driver behind Bronte Forward!  was the acknowledgment that Bronte is evolvingInstead of letting change wash over the community or opposing inevitable growth and intensification, the BIA realized the importance of collectively deciding what it is that makes Bronte special. This collective Vision will assist the BIA in advocating for the best Bronte possible.
