How can a reimagined Peace Fountain contribute to a sense of Community?

In 3 years from now Windsor will have a brand new Gordie Howe bridge, a refurbished Tunnel, and potentially a new Peace Fountain. Wow!! Where else has this kind of investment being done in North America??

How can a reimagined Peace Fountain contribute to a sense of Community?
