The City of Medicine Hat is dedicated to the revitalization of the downtown core and its vision for a vibrant city centre where people live, work, and play. The Downtown Development Incentive Program (managed by the City's Land and Business Support Department) is designed to contribute to this vision by encouraging building improvements and new residential and commercial development in the City’s core.
Depending on your intended Downtown project, funds may be available to redevelop a mature retail space, upgrade a second floor living space, or develop a new multi-use retail/office/residential building.
