Over the next few weeks, Coaldale’s Town Office will relocate to its new home on the second floor of the recently completed Civic Square Building.

The Civic Square Building was built in collaboration with a third-party private developer, Shift Real Estate Investments LP, and marks the completion of Phase 1 of a major 3-Phase economic development project that initially broke ground in July, 2021. The main floor of the building houses a number of commercial businesses, a new Council Chambers for Coaldale Town Council, and an atrium with seating capacity for 260 people that can be used for community events and weddings. The second floor of the building was purchased by the Town for a new municipal office.

“It’s exciting to finally make the move to our new Town Office,” said Kalen Hastings, Chief Administrative Officer for the Town of Coaldale. “A lot went into the planning of this building, and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. We look at the Civic Square project as much
more than just the construction of a new Town Office; at its core it's an economic development project that, once fully operational, will serve as a gathering place that will attract people and events to Coaldale's downtown core.”

“As a Council, we’re also excited to see the Town Office relocate to its new home,” said Town of Coaldale Mayor, Jack Van Rijn. “Once Town staff get set up and all of the audiovisual equipment is installed, Council will also make the move and begin holding its meetings in a brand-new Council Chambers that opens up to a beautiful atrium. I honestly can’t wait for the public to see how great this building turned out, and I look forward to attending the many events that will be held there in the months and years to come.”

With Phase 1 of the Town’s Civic Square project now complete, Phases 2 and 3 can commence. These phases will not only allow for further development of up to 10,000 square feet of additional commercial space along Coaldale’s Main Street, but will also see the redevelopment of the outdoor space directly behind the Civic Square Building. This space will be transformed into a community gathering space by serving as a hub for festivals, markets, outdoor skating, and other community events while also providing parking for Coaldale’s expanding downtown.

Effective January 30, Coaldale’s new Town Office will be fully operational. The Town’s new address/mailing address is as follows:

#200, 1801 - 20th Avenue
P.O. Box 1236
Coaldale, AB
