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, planned for completion in 2020, aims to build on the existing small-town feel in historic downtown for residents, businesses, and visitors.

The following aspects are included in the project:

  • 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:

Veterans Boulevard

This two-year construction project was completed in 2018. In 2017, the first portion of the road from Highway 16A to 44 Avenue was completed. The new road now has four lanes to Fairway Drive and two lanes to Secondary Highway 628. New walking trails have been added along the roadway.

By fully paving Veterans Boulevard, the Town is fulfilling its commitment to the ‘complete streets' philosophy. The new roadway will increase the Town's north-to-south interconnectivity, prepare the community for future developments east of Veterans Boulevard and improve access to the rest of Town.
