Main Street Project

Since 2000, the Town of Wainwright has partnered with the Alberta Main Street Program and the Alberta Heritage Resources Foundation who have granted hundreds of thousands of dollars to preserve and protect the historic downtown centre. This partnership has resulted in numerous studies and strategies to preserve and revitalize the downtown core that have produced draft Standards and Guidelines and streetscape recommendations that include street lights, wheelchair accessibility, sidewalks and traffic speed regulations.

These documents have been attached as appendices to the Town of Wainwright Historic Management Plan and can be assimilated into the new General Municipal Plan that is currently being developed by the Town of Wainwright Department of Development and Planning.
