Shopping, Dining, Arts & Culture

  

Stony Plain has a distinct and progressive business district with the opportunity to draw from the broader region, tapping into a much larger market in search of unique items and services. The community has the nucleus of a destination region, anchored by its historic downtown, Multicultural Heritage Centre, Pioneer Museum, Heritage Park, and Rotary Park. There are several shops and galleries in the downtown core, and Stony Plain is ready to embrace more.

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.
