The Gibsons “Smart Plan” served the community well for eight years, but needed a thoughtful review and update. MODUS supported the Town of Gibsons in its Official Community Plan Update, completing a comprehensive review of issues with staff, working with a Citizen Steering Committee, and creating new policy directions.
Engagement with the community included whiteboard videos, engagement “champions” doing outreach at shopping malls and sporting events, interactive open houses, an online forum, self-directed “OCPizza nights," and questionnaires.
"With the review of its OCP, Gibsons is once again benefiting from outstanding assistance from Rob Barrs and the MODUS team. Beginning with the proposal which demonstrated a high level of understanding of the community, including innovative communication approaches and highly professional management of the overall project, Modus provided a lot of value for our investment. We are very happy with this team and would not hesitate recommending them to others."
