Help us create a vibrant downtown for decades to come

The Town of Canmore officially launched the planning process for an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) for Canmore’s Downtown to support the continued evolution and long-term vibrancy of the Town’s core.

The project’s name, Connect Downtown: Planning a Vibrant Town Centre, reflects the intent of the plan: to reimagine how people can access, gather, and interact with a network of public spaces to support a thriving mixed-use area over the long term.

Connect Downtown will span 18 months from public launch to completion with a final product — an ARP— that will explore a variety of interconnected topics and questions, including:

  • What is the future function and role of Main Street?
  • What is the look and feel of the public realm and open space network?
  • Where is future development and what should it look?
  • Are there opportunities to achieve more attainable housing?
  • What is the future demand for services and infrastructure?
  • What will the transportation network and transit system look like?
  • How can the long-term demand and supply of parking be managed?
