Martin Browne Area Redevelopment Plan

The City of Lloydminster, in conjunction with the contracted organization, is preparing an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) to guide the future redevelopment of the former Martin Browne School site including the area surrounding the outdoor pool and Archie Miller Arena. The site is located in the West Lloydminster neighbourhood, and is located between 50th St. and 47th St. to the north and south and 57th Ave and 56th Ave to the east and west.

What is an ARP?

Area Redevelopment Plans are a common tool used to provide a policy framework which guide the future redevelopment of specific area of the community. When preparing an ARP a number of factors are considered including existing municipal policy, economic conditions, adjacent land uses, physical site conditions and public feedback. The purpose of the ARP is to create a plan that allows the land to be developed to it’s highest and best use making efficient use of existing infrastructure in the community while complimenting existing development in the immediate vicinity.


What does the area contain?

The Martin Browne School opened in 1958 and following its closure in 2014 the land was subsequently transferred from the Lloydminster Public School Division to the City of Lloydminster. The acquisition of the school site and planned demolition of the facility has allowed the City to consider the potential redevelopment of the site.

As a former school yard, the area currently contains a number of recreational opportunities such as a baseball diamond, outdoor basketball court, playgrounds, indoor arena, outdoor pool and plenty of green space adjacent to numerous residential establishments.

In efforts to understand the current and future needs of the community and surrounding residents, the City of Lloydminster will be seeking public feedback on this project during phase 1 and 3 of the project.

  • Is housing scheduled right now by the city in this green space?

    Brenda Born asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Brenda, 

    Thank you for your question. 

    Currently we are in the initial phase of public engagement for the project and are asking residents and stakeholders to voice their potential vision and thoughts on the area redevelopment. During the next phase we will use the public feedback to draft the land use concept which will be brought back to the public in phase three for review and consultation prior to a decision at City Council level. 

  • I’d there any plans for a new playground? Lots of children live in the area, the tot lot is built for younger children and is great, but there isn’t much of a decent playground for all ages in the area.
