Draft Vision for Smith Creek

Smith Creek is about staying put and settling in. This new neighborhood will become the most established community in Three Sisters. Smith Creek will incorporate design features intended to promote inclusiveness and social interaction. Imagine rinks, parks and pavilions that draw this close-knit community together year-round. Smith Creek will serve Canmore by providing housing options for a range of income levels as well as a small commercial centre with all the conveniences and essential services needed for daily living. It will strengthen Canmore’s position as a highly desirable place to live, work, play, and raise a family.

Inclusive

Smith Creek will be an inclusive and interconnected neighbourhood. This will be achieved by:

  • The provision of diverse housing for a variety of household types and tenures.
  • Connections to neighboring areas and Main Street via a network of complete streets and multi-modal transportation options.

Safe

Smith Creek will be safe and resilient community responsibly balancing the requirements of both the built and natural environments. Safe development around areas potentially impacted by steep creek considerations and implementing FireSmart measures will be core to this development.

Sense of Place

Envisioned as the most established community at Three Sisters, Smith Creek will be a close-knit community with residents putting down roots, and taking advantage of the gathering spaces, multi-use trails and other activity-oriented amenities integrated into the community’s fabric.

Design

Smith Creek will employ appropriate practices in neighborhood design for the setting and location, encourage variety in in design and green building practices, while keeping consistent with Canmore’s authentic mountain character.

Economy

Smith Creek will be economically viable and vibrant and will contribute positively to the town. Its small commercial centre will be a hub for new local commercial/light industrial development that assists the growth and diversification of Canmore’s high potential business clusters.
