A festive holiday touch added to the mural at Second and Pitt
The corner of Pitt and Second Streets in Downtown Cornwall has received a colourful festive look for the up-coming holiday season: wreaths and LED lights have been added to the mural wall.

Cornwall - November 22, 2011 - The corner of Pitt and Second Streets in Downtown Cornwall has received a colourful festive look for the up-coming holiday season: wreaths and LED lights have been added to the mural wall.

“We are very grateful to the Ontario Power Generation and to the Cornwall Home Depot for their contribution to this project, without them this could not of happened,” said Tony Lacroix, project coordinator for Centretown Cornwall. “On Wednesday when I was putting up the lights, I heard a familiar voice shouting “looks great” when I turned-around I saw a big thumbs-up; this was our mayor Bob Kilger."

“This corner being one of the key visual points of the area needed some holiday cheer,” said Councillor Denis Carr, who heads up Heart of the City. “Once the Dominion Place project is completed, the hoarding will be removed. The mural can then be easily re-use in its’ entirety or in parts in other key areas of the city.”

The decor lights-up at dusk and is lit for approximately 8 hours, giving residents of Cornwall ample time in the evenings to enjoy and admire this unique mural with its’ holiday transformation.

“A big thank you still goes out to all of the artists, local business and residents who donated time, food, housing and services for this artistic endeavour.” said Bryan Merkley, Chair of Centretown Cornwall.

The mural project was spearheaded and funded by Heart of the City and the Centretown Cornwall revitalization project.

Centretown Cornwall is a three-year revitalization project with a focus on the traditional commercial areas of Cornwall. The project is focused on four key areas: economic development, organizational development, marketing and promotions and physical improvements. The name of the project speaks to a larger goal of promoting the Downtown, Le Village, Cotton Mills and Lamoureux Park districts as a single area while still maintaining the individual characteristics of those areas. The project is being lead by Heart of the City, and other project partners include the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, the City of Cornwall, the Downtown Business Improvement Area, Le Village Business Improvement and Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce.
