Stony Plain Central School Servicing

In March 2018, the province announced the replacement of Stony Plain Central School. The school is anticipated to be open for the fall 2021 school year. The Town of Stony Plain is required to provide the necessary infrastructure services (road, underground) to meet the requirements of the school. Town administration is working in partnership with Parkland School Division and Alberta Infrastructure to complete the project.

The project will involve extending the road from the west end of 57 avenue, and installing new underground infrastructure and a round-a-bout.

Downtown Redevelopment

Stony Plain's downtown is the core of the Town, where residents and visitors can shop, live, work, and play.

The Downtown Redevelopment project primarily focuses on the replacement of aging infrastructure in our downtown core. Planned for completion in 2020, the upgrade will also enhance our historic downtown for residents, businesses, and visitors.

The following aspects are included in the project:

  • Full replacement of infrastructure including water, sanitary and storm pipes.
  • Bulb-outs at intersections to lessen pedestrian crossing distances. Bulb-outs will also create small pedestrian gathering pockets; will allow for further planting enhancements, seating, and other street furniture; and help animate those spaces to make them enjoyable areas for pedestrians to spend their time. These locations will also serve as focal opportunities for art and sculptures.
  • Stamped and coloured asphalt StreetBond crossings will be more noticeable to drivers and make crossings safer for the pedestrians.
  • Drop down curb ramps will be incorporated at crossings and handicap parking stalls to support wheelchair accessibility and promote universal accessibility.
  • Wide sidewalks will be enhanced with coloured and sandblasted concrete patterns. Well-defined pedestrian and street furniture zones will maximize the pedestrian realm.
  • Furniture Zones will include: trees in tree grates; lit bollards; light poles with hanging baskets and banners; concrete planters; seating; traffic and wayfinding signage; garbage receptacles; and bicycle racks.
  • To sustain the trees long-term, soil cells will be incorporated into the drainage design to fit within the sidewalk.
  • Lit bollards will further help indicate the pedestrian realm and protect from vehicles parking along the road. The illumination will also add interest and aesthetics during the night and winter months.
  • An upgrade to LED light bulbs will be incorporated into the electrical design for all proposed street lights and bollards.
  • Avenues will be transformed up to the alleyways to tie into bike corridors and differentiate the downtown core from the surrounding residential areas.
  • A roundabout has been designed at 50th Street and 51st Ave to conform to standard vehicle turning radius. This will be the focal point of the downtown, and a designated area for festivals and events.
  • The roundabout will support future placement of removable gazebos, art, and/or the Town Christmas tree, which will animate the space.
  • Downtown entrance pillar signage at both the North and South entrances. 

Phase I

Phase I was completed in 2017 behind businesses on 50 Street including:

  • One-way lanes and new multipurpose trails
  • Paved line markings and overhead lighting

  • Lit bollards

Some finishing work will be completed in 2019.
