Downtown Vitalization LOGO

Thank you for visiting Cobourg's Downtown Vitalization page.

A Cobourg Downtown Vitalization Task Force was established in 2012 to create an action plan to revitalize the central downtown business district for the Town of Cobourg. An Action Plan was developed in 2013 in partnership with the Town of Cobourg, Downtown Business Improvement Area (DBIA), the Northumberland Central Chamber of Commerce and the Northumberland Business Advisory Centre. The Plan is currently being implemented with major projects being spearheaded by Town of Cobourg Staff. 

A newly formed “Downtown Coalition” will be formed in order to encourage downtown stakeholder groups to work in a more efficient and cohesive manner for the benefit of the downtown core. The coalition will monitor development of the downtown and provide annual reports to Cobourg Council on the progress of set performance measures


Downtown Cobourg is Ontario’s foremost cultural and recreational small town destination forged from a beautifully preserved historic community on the waterfront. As the economic hub of Northumberland County, it will deliver accessible experiences and opportunities generated from local agriculture, environmental consciousness and active, health-centered living.
