City to create plan to revitalize downtown

The City of Camrose has begun an exciting planning process to “re_vitalize”, “re_imagine,” and “re_discover” our downtown area through the creation of a Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan (DARP) that is suitable to the needs of Camrosians.

“Downtown Camrose has always been the economic, social and cultural heart of Camrose and an important part of the community’s overall identity. This plan will help ensure that it not only stays this way, but that it will thrive even more,” Mayor Norm Mayer said.

City Manager, Malcolm Boyd added, “We’re looking to hear about what people want to see in the downtown area, what changes should be made, what the best features are and what would make downtown Camrose a more attractive and vibrant district.”

This will not be a quick process, as we want to take the time to receive feedback to incorporate into the plan, specifically from those who are deeply invested in the downtown area – such as those who either live, work, and/or own property downtown. “We will have a variety of different engagement sessions for you to participate in throughout the course of this project,” says Aaron Leckie, Director of Planning and Development. “Updates will be consistently posted on the Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan webpage at www.camrose.ca/DARP.” The project is estimated to be completed by October 2018.
