The Heart of the Village
Bursting with charm and historic character, Main Street is nestled in the heart of Schomberg.
A popular destination for residents and tourists alike, as well as many cyclists, Main Street is the perfect location for specialty shops and restaurants. Because of its nature as a destination and because it holds many festivals and events, Main Street is actively promoted by King Township as an ExperienceKING destination worthy of coming to often.
Bursting with Dining
With two pubs, a wine bar, a fine dining restaurant, two coffee shops and a pizzeria, Main Street dining has something for everyone. With Main Street a walkable distance from the business park, it is a popular lunch destination for business owners and employees, as well as residents and visitors.
Community Improvement Plan
The commercial core of Main Street extends from Dr. Kay Drive just past Church Street. Commercial and mixed use properties located in the core, as well as residential properties being converted to commercial use are eligible for matching funding from the Community Improvement Plan. The Plan outlines financial incentives for property owners and tenants to invest in their property and outlines other actions, projects and strategies that the Township will undertake to implement the Plan.
As of December 2018, four properties on Main Street have received a total of $56,157 in partnership funding from King Township.
Schomberg Main Street Revitalization Project
King Township, in partnership with the Schomberg community, has developed a strategy to ensure the vitality of the commercial core of Schomberg's Main Street.
The project was made possible thanks to $52,000 secured in partnership funding from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) through the Rural Economic Development (RED) program. This program funds projects that stimulate economic growth in Ontario’s rural communities by helping to grow the local economy and remove barriers to economic development.
In 2021, the Township of King secured an additional $69,702 in partnership from OMAFRA through the RED project.
