Civic Common Master Plan
The City of Lethbridge’s Civic Common Master Plan provides a framework to guide future growth and development within the plan area. The Civic Common is a community hub for our city and required a comprehensive long-term plan to:
- Create a welcoming, inclusive and accessible space that encourages social interaction
- Guide future decisions on development in the area in an adaptable and flexible way
- Revitalize its existing assets
- Support a variety of activities including civic, recreational, and cultural objectives
The Civic Common, formerly referred to as the Civic Precinct, is a four-square-block section that includes the land occupied by City Hall, located at 910 4 Ave. S. and south to the:
- Civic Ice Centre and Civic Field, located at 905 6 Ave. S.
- Lethbridge Senior Citizens Organization (LSCO), located at 500 11 St. S.
- Old Courthouse, located at 320 4 St. S.
- Yates Theatre, located at 1002 4 Ave. S.
We developed this master plan in consultation with the study team, stakeholders, the public and Council, who worked to shape the vision for the Civic Common. The Civic Common Master Plan documents background research, site analysis, community engagement, design vision and phasing strategy.
