OLD TOWN COMMUNITY PLAN

The Town of Stony Plain is undertaking a phased study for the downtown and vicinity areas to develop an Area Redevelopment Plan for the downtown and surrounding areas. The Old Town Community Plan will be utilized by both the public and private sectors to create a complete, sustainable downtown. The project aims to provide a clear guide and predicable framework for both private and public investment and for citizens with a stake in the downtown. The Old Town Community Plan will serve as a powerful tool for visualizing a preferred form of downtown redevelopment to offer guidance for Council, to set policy and for the Town′s review of development projects. The Plan will provide the policy framework for updates to the MDP, Land Use Bylaw, and development of a long-term capital improvement plan to support the implementation of the Old Town Community Redevelopment Plan.

PROJECT UPDATE

BACKGROUND

 

In the spring of 2018, the Town of Stony Plain initiated a planning project to develop a long term vision for its core area “Old Town Stony Plain”. This plan will set policy and land use direction for the Old Town area and guide future land development decisions over the next 25 years. To date, the project team has hosted a series of public engagement sessions and has prepared a first draft of the Old Town Community Plan which received First Reading in front of Town Council in June 2019.

NEXT STEPS

 

At this time, the Old Town Community Plan may undergo changes based on feedback from the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board and upcoming public hearing in August and September of 2019. Following those changes, the Old Town Community Plan bylaw will be adopted by Council through Second and Third Reading.
