The Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan (DARP) for the Town of Fox Creek presents a vision for the core of our community over the next 25 years. As our community grows and develops over time, we intend for our downtown to serve as a retail and service hub that not only provides a centre for local residents, but also serves the region as a whole.

In addition to providing additional commercial opportunities, we also want to position our downtown as a centre of community activity.
