Heart of Our City

Downtown Lethbridge is known as a unique place within the City - considered to be the 'Heart' of our wonderful city. In September of 2007, City Council recognized the special nature of Downtown and adopted the framework to transform downtown into a distinct area warranting exceptional planning, taxation rules, development standards and public investment. The substance of this framework is embodied in the Heart of Our City Master Plan.

The vision is based on significant public consultation and provides a broad structure for shaoing the intended future role, function and character of downtown Lethbridge. The vision consolidates key directives from previous studies and plans and is intended to provide a reference and benchmark for future downtown planning.

An important milestone in community planning, the Heart of Our City Master Plan also compromises six Campaign Pillars and ten Key Visioning Strategies. We encourage you to spread the word about the Master Plan - building a great downtown takes an entire community!

The Heart of Our City Revitalization Committee meets on the second Wednesday of the month starting at 4:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers.
