PONOKA- The Heritage and Downtown Revitalization Committee is hosting a celebration of Ponoka’s new Downtown Action Plan.

Residents and businesses are invited to join the committee for a free community lunch and a brief presentation about the new Downtown Action Plan on Thursday, October 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kinsmen Community Centre.

“We’re inviting the community to come and learn more about the Downtown Action Plan while enjoying a delicious lunch, some celebratory cake and an opportunity to chat with other residents, business people, community volunteers and members of the new Town Council about Ponoka’s new Plan for revitalizing the downtown area,” says Greg Braat, Chair of the Heritage and Downtown Revitalization Committee.

The Downtown Action Plan includes a series of suggested actions to encourage future growth, development and improvement of the downtown area.

Recommended streetscape design includes surface improvement features such as trees and landscaping, concrete patterns in the sidewalk, and street furniture.

There is also a plan for managing parking, a marketing strategy, and architectural guidelines for future development of buildings.
