Strengthening our core is a major component of Council’s Strategic Plan. To achieve this, the City of Grande Prairie is investing heavily in its Downtown. The Downtown Infrastructure Assessment, Streetscape Enhancement & Rehabilitation Project and the South Montrose Master Plan are leading to key investments in the public realm. These investments include improved streetscapes, the creation of new public spaces and upgraded infrastructure to accommodate increased density.

The Downtown Incentives Program contributes to this vision by engaging the local business community in the redevelopment of their downtown businesses. The Urban Residential Development Grant will help encourage the development of higher density housing options to bring more residents into the area. In addition, the Façade Improvement Grant will allow business owners to enhance the appearance and impact of their building’s frontage and the Patio Grant will help businesses add outdoor amenities, bringing a greater public presence to the streets of downtown and creating a more vibrant core.

Together, these programs are designed to capitalize on the existing strengths of our Downtown, including more than 500 businesses and several cultural facilities. The downtown enhancement project and the South Montrose Master Plan will enable visitors and residents to enjoy these many amenities while the Downtown Incentives Program will help local businesses continue to invest in their downtown.
