ABOUT THE PROJECT
Corridors (streets) play an important role in our community. Corridors connect us to key destinations, and they provide space for public events and recreation.
In 2019, the Town of Cochrane initiated a project to think about the future of four corridors in Town: Fifth Avenue, Railway Street, River Avenue, and Griffin Road. We hosted an online survey and connected with business owners and community members along each corridor. These conversations helped us imagine how the four corridors might function for people, bikes, transit, and cars in the future, while also adding to the character of downtown Cochrane.
In 2020, we paused the project to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021, we’ve picked-up where we left off and developed a draft Cochrane Corridors Plan. The draft Plan provides guidelines for planning and development along Fifth Avenue, Railway Street, River Avenue, and Griffin Road that the Town can use when making development and design decisions. The draft Plan will also help landowners, businesses and the public understand the vision for these corridors.
In 2019, your input helped us understand how and why you travel along each corridor. You also shared if the corridor is a link (i.e., a street used to move efficiently between destinations), or a people place (e.g., the street is a destination unto itself).
