  • Angela Aujla, whose artwork can be found at the southwest corner of Bayfield Street and Wellington Street.
  • Ashley Gringhuis, whose artwork can be found at the northwest corner of St. Vincent Street and Grove Street.

The heritage wraps include historical photos gathered by the Heritage Committee and provided courtesy of the Simcoe County Archives and the Barrie Historical Archive. They can be found at the following locations:

Northeast corner of Burton Avenue and Bayview Drive

The City of Barre has wrapped 10 utility cabinets since the inception of the Graffiti Abatement Program.
