ABOUT ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE:
Town of Rocky Mountain House is located 45 minutes west of Red Deer.
A Strong Community with a Promising Future … This is Where Adventure Begins!
Locals describe Rocky Mountain House as family-oriented, fun, financially stable, and flourishing; these are truly the four pillars of a great community in which to live, work and play.
Along with a strong community spirit and a small-town feel, Rocky offers a wide spectrum of services to its trading area of 21,000 people and thousands more tourists during the summer months.
Rocky Mountain House is a major centre for timber, agriculture, and oil and gas enterprises, as well as being a gateway to the splendid recreation areas of the Rocky Mountains. It offers full amenities for tourism, health care, recreation, education, banking, shopping and dining. The local arts and culture scene is flourishing. The summer of 2015 proved to be another great year for events like Marketplace on Main, which was enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.
Today, the future looks bright for the thriving community of 7,300. With some exploration in the region that surrounds Rocky Mountain House and possible future development in the coal industry, the community hopes to welcome new companies and residents in the future.
Development and local construction is strong and active in the community. In 2014-2015, there have been many significant developments around town.
- Main Street redevelopment
- Recreation Centre expansion
- Addition to Railway Plaza
- Expansions to three local hotels
- Park Avenue Adult Condominiums
- New stores including Peavey Mart and The Brick anchoring Main Street
The Town is aiming to enhance the quality of life for its citizens through facility and infrastructure upgrades. The major upgrade to Main Street worth $11 million will introduce barrier-free sidewalks, new light standards, trees, planters and more landscaping will be done in the spring of 2016.
The renovation and expansion of the recreation centre, which commenced in the summer of 2014, will make it an excellent venue for everyone to enjoy. The first phase worth $13 million will encompass the construction of a two-storey multi-purpose facility, with a large lobby, meeting and party rooms, fitness centre, multi-purpose rooms, banquet facilities and new enlarged change rooms. Future phases include more recreation amenities, such as a field house with an indoor running/walking track.
The Town is seeking developers for residential and rental development within the community to accommodate the future exploration and mineral operations that will happen in the area. The Town is eager and willing to assist developers through the process. There are also highway commercial opportunities available to locate your business.
The Town of Rocky Mountain House is a great place to live. New projects and on-going development in the region means Rocky Mountain House has a strong future.
