Fort Nelson Landscape Enhancement Manual

Project Description

We worked very closely with town staff and the local Beautification Committee to provide a Landscape Enhancement Manual for the Town of Fort Nelson. The goal was to continue, direct and advance upon the enhancement initiatives already being implemented within the community. Our team identified opportunities for attaching an enhancement initiative to every infrastructure project being undertaken within the Town, dovetailed with the key areas of focus, such as Parks, Municipal Buildings, the Alaska Highway Boulevard and Downtown Core Streetscapes.

We generated a working document with concept design options for material palettes, signage, and furnishing, along with preliminary budgets. The result is a coordinated and themed Town-wide initiative, reinforcing and promoting the very unique qualities of the Town and its position on the Alaska Highway at the gateway to the Northern Rockies and Yukon Territory. The document identifies opportunities for an urban greenway, unique neighbourhood parks and amenities, and a vibrant downtown core to enhance community comfort and safety, encourage investment, and attract passing tourists.
