Let’s talk about downtown Red Deer

This is your chance to help shape the future of downtown Red Deer. We want to know what you love about downtown, what matters to you and how you envision the future of downtown.

This is all part of the Downtown Identity Project, which aims to create a refreshed identity for downtown Red Deer – one that resonates with Red Deerians, businesses, visitors and investors, and inspires them to visit, shop, work, live and invest in its commercial core. At the end of the project, we’ll have a Downtown Identity and Strategy Plan that outlines a shared vision, guiding principles and opportunities for both the community and The City to implement.

The goal is to have an identifiable, well-invested downtown where residents and visitors repeatedly participate in unique, engaging, diverse and positive activities and experiences. Key areas that may be considered by the engagement process and the final plan include heritage, transportation, tourism, the economy, environment, social factors and more. 

Following the engagement phase of the project, community insights will be used to inform initial stages of the plan. A report back to the community will also be shared to highlight what was heard and how that information was used.
