Centre-and-third Third-Ave

Here are the  initial designs for the new look to our downtown as presented to Council by the Economic Development Advisory Committee.

Downtown improvement was highlighted as a priority in the Economic Development Strategic Plan and this is part of that process.

These designs are the results from a series of public engagements and focus groups which started in spring 2017. This program was funded by a CARES (Community and Regional Economic Support) grant from the Alberta Government Department of Economic Development and Trade. Key feedback received was for more public gathering spaces, more shade and spaces for more public programming and economic activity in order to get more people spending time downtown. 

The next steps will be to take these designs back out to the public for feedback, followed by creating detailed plans and to set a timeline for implementing the plans.
