Based on the principles of conservation design, Rocky View County, AB, is preparing an Area Structure Plan for the Glenbow Ranch area near Calgary. The vision is a well-connected hamlet with variety of housing choices in a setting surrounded by Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park and working ranch lands.
MODUS is designing and leading the public and stakeholder engagement for this process, which involved engaging about 90 landowners and stakeholders in a series of one-on-one stakeholder meetings, a Conservation Design panel discussion, four interactive open houses, and three landowner workshops. Our goal is to build trust with participants, share clear information, and gather input to inform the plan’s development.
"Daniella and Vince helped us raise the bar on engagement when we updated the County Plan. The Shaping Rocky View project was a great success, with over 1200 people participating. We now have a custom-built engagement toolkit they developed for us. They consistently apply best practices and we have hired them for further support on several County projects."
