Stony Plain’s Destination Shopping, Dining, Arts, and Culture industry potential can be broken into two trade areas. The first is a local market within a 10 km radius from the centre of the Town’s downtown district. The second, described as a destination district market, reaches out to a 100 km radius.
Local government is committed to creating a business environment that has a solid foundation for development. There are several components that serve as this foundation including coordinated business marketing and events developing a civic square, developing a mixed-density and pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood west of the downtown, as well as creating a town entrance feature.
Other areas of focus include a redesign of the downtown, reorganizing current town anchors and existing structures, recruitment, creating industry-related events, and prioritizing execution with strong leadership and vision.
