Downtown Steering Committee
The Downtown Steering Committee was established in 2006 to advise Council on the enhancement of the downtown core. The Committee considers high-level issues which impact the downtown area and encourages cooperation between the various business, institutional, residential, cultural and economic development interests in the redevelopment of downtown.
More information about the goals and objectives of the Downtown Steering Committee can be found in the Downtown Steering Committee Terms of Reference.
Currently, Creston’s downtown is in the midst of a 5-year long facelift. Phase 1 of the Downtown Project, which was completed in the first half of 2008, included the construction of the Spirit Square on 11th Avenue, and upgrades to the Cook Street parking lot.
Planned upgrades for Phase 2 of the project include changes to the Cook Street pedestrian crosswalk and the expansion of the parking lot on the south side of Cook Street. This phase also includes plans for improvements to Canyon Street, including wider sidewalks at intersections, new streetlights, trees and street furniture from 10th Avenue to 16th Avenue.
