Gasoline Alley - June 10, 2016 (69)Gasoline Alley West

Gasoline Alley West is an up and coming community that will promote a healthy environment, job growth and business diversity. Ground has broken on a new 184 unit seniors/dementia care facility and an extended stay hotel this year – both of which were previously unavailable in the central Alberta region. 

New Service Facilities

Along with these facilities comes a much desired medical hub; a pharmacist, eye doctor, dentist and other medical related businesses are establishing themselves in Gasoline Alley.  There is already quite the financial hub existing with the many accounting firms that have moved out there and it’s still growing.  

Liberty Landing

Gasoline Alley West will also be home to Liberty Landing, a new residential community.  This subdivision, along with a recently approved mixed use commercial/residential multi-story building will complement the current existing service industry facilities available within the area. 

Community

Gasoline Alley West is moving towards a more livable / workable community with the inclusion of sidewalks and bus stops, helping the community become more accessible.  Bus transportation has been available for the past couple of years with service to Red Deer as well as Springbrook. 

Economic Expansion

Gasoline Alley is becoming one of the more desirable places to establish a business and locate. Red Deer County’s new Economic Development Strategic Plan has a focus on Gasoline Alley West and the great ways we can gather community together and prosper.
