Leduc Downtown Preservation Plan

Pipestone Flyer

In 2012 the City of Leduc passed a Municipal Development Plan that would assist the city in planning the city’s various needs for the next twenty plus years. 

    One aspect of the plan was the future development of Leduc’s Downtown. The plan includes a number of ideas to encourage future development while maintaining the historic integrity of Downtown through support for the preservation of heritage resources and design guidelines that will provide for development that respects the historic values of Downtown Leduc. 

    

    One of the first chores was to identify the buildings downtown that have a historical interest and should be recognized as having played an important role in the development of Leduc’s downtown. To date a number of buildings have been identified that include Dr. Wood’s Home, the Waldorf Hotel, and the Anderson Block. Owners of the buildings will be encouraged to maintain, as much as possible, the historical features of the buildings. Once all the buildings have been identified they will be presented to City Council for final approval sometime early this fall.
