Hi Randy--We've outlined some of the environmental concerns at the main project site. Please visit www.peacefountain.ca to learn more. This includes the fountain's significant energy use (equivalent to 50 homes), as well as other environmental concerns in the immediate vicinity that a reimagined Peace Fountain could address, including aquatic species habitat for endangered or threatened species, river water quality, localized flooding, among others.

Hi Randy--the Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain is dedicated in the memory of Charles Brooks, and we recognize that Windsorites have many memories attached to the fountain, including those who have donated benches in Reaume Park in memory of their loved ones. We believe memory plays an important role at the Peace Fountain and at Reaume Park and we're looking for ideas about how these components can be enhanced.

Thanks for the feedback Rusty. Could you tell us more about how the fountain could minimize human tampering?
Peace Fountain Team commented on Future of the Peace Fountain 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Hi Marc--our team was awarded the project through an open public procurement process. This site is for gathering public feedback and ideas for the Peace Fountain. You can raise your ideas and concerns about the public tendering process to the City of Windsor's Purchasing Department.

We're using this extended public engagement process, as well as other avenues, including working closely with City, to develop designs that are meaningful to Windsorites. The design options developed during this phase will be presented to Council later this year.
Peace Fountain Team commented on Future of the Peace Fountain 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Thanks for sharing Rusty! There are lots of great qualities to Reaume Park and the Peace Fountain that should be reinforced through this project.
Peace Fountain Team commented on Future of the Peace Fountain 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Thanks for sharing Mike. This is an opportunity to create new possibilities for the fountain, such as year round operation, and eliminating the need to remove it from the water every year which is an expensive operation. The project is currently in the design phase and will be presented to council later this year. Only after approval there would fabrication and construction contracts be procured through the City's processes.

Hi Myra--the consultation plan for the Peace Fountain is organized in four distinct phases and will run for a number of months. We started in November and will continue to April 2022. You can find more information about the different phases at www.peacefountain.ca. We want to involve as many Windsorites as we can throughout this process and are always looking for ways to spread the word about the project. Please be sure to tell your family and friends.

Thanks for sharing Enver!
Peace Fountain Team commented on Future of the Peace Fountain 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Hi Enver--our goal is to understand how Windsorites relate to the Peace Fountain and what they value about it. It's been a civic icon for more than 40 years, so we expect there will be a wide range of feelings and memories associated with it. We deeply respect Charles Brooks' legacy--it's foundational to the Peace Fountain and this project. Some of his most significant accomplishments are outlined on the main project website at www.peacefountain.ca
Peace Fountain Team commented on Future of the Peace Fountain 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Thanks for your feedback Brian. The Peace Fountain is nearing the end of its lifecycle, and we have an opportunity to reimagine it in a way that will save costs in the long term. Removing and reinstalling the current fountain every year is a costly undertaking, as are the energy costs. Please refer to this article for more information:

On-site energy generation is an excellent idea Mark! Lots of great advantages as you point out.
Peace Fountain Team commented on Future of the Peace Fountain 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Thanks for sharing June--the Peace Fountain really does hold so many different memories for so many Windsorites.
Peace Fountain Team commented on Future of the Peace Fountain 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Charles Brooks left Windsor an incredible legacy, and played a significant role in workers rights for Canadians at large. What he achieved in an intensely challenging era for workers rights is remarkable, and a source of his desire for peace locally and internationally.

Thanks for sharing Luanne--these are great features of Windsor!
