Cochrane Open Space Master Plan
Town of Cochrane
2013 Canadian Institute of Planners Award of Excellence for Recreation Planning.
Intelligent Futures supported project lead O2 Planning + Design on the engagement for this forward-looking open space plan. Using a variety of methods, including Sounding Boards, O2′s map-based online feedback tool, stakeholder workshops and open houses, the community had a wide range of opportunities to inform the development of the plan. One local leader said in a blog post entitled “How to Engage 101: Open Spaces”: “the high standard being set for public engagement with the Open Spaces plan should be the new standard for the Town of Cochrane when they’re setting direction for major infrastructure and long range planning.”
