Team Windsor Revivers are ready
Picture take by Rod Strickland

As always, team Windsor Revivers are on the go!

   We are almost at our final stages. Yesterday had the pleasure of walking around downtown conducting surveys and on spot interviews as well as on the University campus. Even though some people did not seem interested in giving their opinion to us, the majority of people we approached were more than glad to share.  Those who cooperated with us were given the one of a kind W.D.W.W.? wristband, which everyone loved. Another important point to note, and that got us excited, is when we spoke to people about our project they recognized us from our Facebook page or from the Windsor Star video. This gave us a huge boost of confidence and made us fell a little more important.

   The statistics, so far, now show many great ideas! We have sorted out that most of our ideas can be fit into three different categories; environmentally friendly, family friendly and business friendly.

   We will be picking out the most wanted ideas over next few weeks, but at this point we have noticed a few trends. In environmentally friendly some of the most appealing ideas where implementing green walls on the some of the bare building faces, planting more trees, and eco-friendly lighting. The eco-friendly lighting is interesting to us because it will not only brighten up the street but it can help save on carbon emissions. In the family friendly category we have noticed that many people want to see museums, a community garden and the most popular idea is the Arcade. This reminded us of a once beloved place called Fast Eddies that used to face our beautiful water front, we think it would be great to bring that child friendly place back.  Bicycle rental and more variety in the types of shopping available were some of the more popular topics pertaining to the business category, as well as more affordable rent for new business owners.

   Before finalizing our final outcome, we will need more data related to those three categories. So if you have any great ideas or agree with some of the ones already mentioned be sure to pop in on our Facebook page and let us know! Research at this point is still ongoing!

See you next week!

Some Good News And What To Look Forward To

The public liked the green wall. Surveys are going to be conducting soon. And as always, our Facebook page is growing.

Welcome back!

     We are excited to report that attention to our project is starting to climb! Not only did we go from 60 likes on Facebook to over 150 in one week, but we were also featured in a brief story by WindsoriteDOTca. WindsoriteDOTca is a local online news source and it is an honor to be posted about by them. We have been motivated to seek more media attention and we are actively seeking the opportunity to get the word out that we are conducting research on Windsor’s opinion and are contacting various communication mediums such as newspapers, local magazines and radio. So tune in you might hear about us soon.

     We have been working on several smaller aspects of our project. We have created posters that provide an instant link to our page with a scan-able QR code for smart phones, as well as the link to our page that can be pulled off the poster and taken with you. We plan on posting them around the university campus over the weekend, as well as downtown. The surveys we created are designed to gain insight into the current status of our downtown, and how it is being used by the public right now, we are just waiting on approval from our ethics board to proceed with their use in our project. We have began pulling popular ideas from our Facebook feedback and inputting them into a statistical framework, as well as recording the information we have received through our individual, one on one interaction with people in the downtown area. We have ordered our W.D.W.W.? (What Does Windsor Want?) Green Corridor silicon wristbands and they should be available for distribution by next week, we are just waiting for them to get here! The wristbands are our thanks for your participation so look for us if you would like one.

As you can see it has been a very busy week for us behind the scenes!
Come back soon or visit our Facebook page, it is beginning to show exciting times to come!
