Downtown Urban Design Master Plan Project

The Town of Okotoks is working with O2 Planning & Design Inc. to develop a Downtown Urban Design Master Plan, which will help guide future enhancement and redevelopment of the downtown in support of our Community Vision.  

A number of public engagement activities are planned to gather information on creating a people-centred, welcoming space that reflects the Okotoks’ vision.

It is an opportunity to enhance the quality of the downtown with a family of distinctive site elements and durable materials; diversify the amenities available within the community; activate forgotten spaces and make them appealing in all months of the year; and, make safe and welcoming spaces that invite all members of the community to participate in the social heart of the Town.

This project will build on recent community visioning work and the Okotoks Community Sustainability Plan (CSP). The community identified the need to animate the downtown as one of the critical steps in the CSP and the Downtown Urban Design Master Plan is one of the key documents required to achieve this critical step. 

Development of this plan will continue our engagement with the community and build on the vision developed through previous engagement initiatives.
