Local leaders are hoping Armstrong Street in the city's Hintonburg neighbourhood can become home to a thriving mix of local stores and restaurants.

"Take Kensington Market in Toronto and Granville Island in Vancouver and mix them up and create a hybrid," said Wellington West BIA board member Randy Kemp during last week's planning committee meeting. "There are a lot of vacant lots on Armstrong, so there's an opportunity for new ideas and new development."
