The City of Grande Prairie is dedicated to the revitalization of the downtown core and its vision for a vibrant city centre where people live, work, and play. The Downtown Incentives Program is designed to contribute to this vision by encouraging building improvements and new residential development in the City’s core. On January 25th, 2016 City Council approved Policy 316, Downtown Incentives Program.
The program is comprised of four components:
The Urban Residential Development Grant is designed to encourage property owners within the Program Boundary to invest in new development and/or redevelopment of their properties for Mixed-Use or multi-unit residential use. Meanwhile, the Façade Improvement Grant rewards downtown building owners and tenants for making improvements to the fronts of their buildings that enhance aesthetic appeal, pedestrian access and public safety. The Patio Grant provides a financial incentive for business owners to develop an outdoor patio space and encourage an increased public presence on the streets of downtown. Finally, the Demolition Grant offers a 50% matching grant up to a maximum of $50,000 for the removal of a building within the downtown incentives boundary.
The Downtown Incentives Program will open for applications April 9th - May 7th, 2018. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first served basis.
Please refer to Procedure 316 - Downtown Incentives Program (PDF, 239 KB) and the Downtown Incentives Program Guidelines (PDF, 721 KB) for full details on the application procedure and process.
The Program will apply to projects within the designated Downtown Incentives Program Boundary as defined by City Council. The program boundary is unique to this program and is expanded beyond the Central Commercial District and other Downtown projects.
