Invermere Community Plan

Client The District of Invermere
Location Invermere | British Columbia | Canada

In response to increased tourism and residential development, the District of Invermere engaged O2 to update their Official Community Plan. The project involved preparation of a Community Needs Assessment in which public workshops and a telephone survey measured the hierarchy of current issues and needs. Based on this hierarchy, zoning together with streetscape and massing typologies were created. 

Additionally, conceptual designs for key catalytic projects were prepared. O2 developed detailed design guidelines for the Athalmer Development Permit Area and guidelines for the Community Hall and former High School site. Guidelines included preliminary architectural programming, massing, form and material design, as well as site development recommendations for streetscape enhancement, circulation, parking, hard and soft landscape, site furnishings, and lighting.
