Castlegar Integrated Community Sustainability Plan

Project Description

We worked with the City of Castlegar on an Integrated Community Sustainability Planning (ICSP) Process, including the development of an Infrastructure Strategy and a Sustainable Community Plan through a phased approach.

This project has helped the City of Castlegar to articulate:

  • a vision for community sustainability
  • establish guiding principles for the future development of the community
  • foster sustainability awareness and public engagement in the planning process
  • review social, economic, and environmental conditions (triple bottom line) in the development of the community
  • review available land supply and long-term demand in the City
  • complete future development scenario analysis to evaluate development options based on integrated sustainability planning considerations
  • validate infrastructure strategies to accommodate the selected development scenario
  • develop policies to address high priority ICSP areas such as economic development, housing, transportation, and downtown revitalization
  • define the roadmap for a sustainable future

The project has involved the creation and analysis of future development scenarios to inform the Sustainable Community Plan and Infrastructure Strategy.
