South Montrose Master Plan
The South Montrose Site Master Plan aims to build on Grande Prairie's heritage and cultural background by creating an hub for arts and culture for the region. In addition to incorporating community feedback, the planning team focused on including direction from previous planning documents, including the 2004 Downtown Enhancement Area Redevelopment Plan, the Cultural Master Plan, the Downtown Rehabilitation Project and the applicable Land Use Bylaw.
The three key elements in the design are a Performing and Media Arts Centre, a plaza and a mixed-use building. The approaches in the plan address climate issues like sunlight and wind, and maximize connections with surrounding attractions like the Montrose Cultural Centre, Downtown Grande Prairie, and the South Montrose Concourse that is currently under construction. The plan was approved by City Council on Monday, June 27, 2016.
