Lacombe Main Street Program wins APWA Alberta Award

“We are proud receive this prestigious award from the APWA,” - Mayor Grant Creasey

The City of Lacombe is pleased to announce that its Main Street Program was the recipient of the American Public Works Association (APWA) Alberta Chapter’s 2018 Project of the Year Award: $5 to $10 Million Category, which recognizes excellence in the construction, management, and administration of public works projects in Alberta.

The award was presented yesterday at the APWA’s 2018 Excellence in Public Works Conference and Tradeshow at the Sheraton Hotel, Red Deer.

“We are proud receive this prestigious award from the APWA,” said Mayor Grant Creasey. “This project was a true revitalization, which took Lacombe’s downtown from its 19th century roots and readied it for the 21st century, to ensure continued prosperity for the community.”

“The Main Street Project was a unique project with significant historical context, in which the whole spectrum of public works was combined,” said Chief Administrative Officer Matthew Goudy. “Our creativity was tested, many technical challenges were overcome, and strong stakeholder collaboration was key to the success outcome of this project.”

“At the City we also recognize the value of the ongoing work done by APWA Alberta Chapter to improve the quality of public works products and services to Albertans” said Director of Planning and Operations Jordan Thompson. “Our team from Stantec, Pidherney’s and the City are proud of Lacombe and were all vital in making the Main Street project a success.”

The Lacombe Main Street Program was initiated in 2015 when aging sanitary sewer issues were identified. The project grew into a $6.75 million downtown revitalization, which was delivered on schedule and under budget in the summer of 2018.
