Leading an interdisciplinary consulting team, ParioPlan developed an Area Structure Plan (ASP) to guide future growth and development in an expanding West Lethbridge. The City wanted a plan that would “develop planning, urban design and infrastructure solutions that will ensure the creation of a vibrant, livable and diverse activity centre in West Lethbridge.” The Plan area was organized into two villages and a mixed-use community core, which served as a focal point and service centre. Design guidelines were also prepared for the community core. Nine planning principles were identified to guide development of the land use concept. The ASP was prepared over an eight month period and included consultation with stakeholders and the community in interviews, vision building workshops and open houses.
