O2 is honoured to be the recipient of a 2015 CIP Award for Planning Excellence in Natural Systems Planning for the Parkland County Environmental Conservation Master Plan! From the CIP press release:
"The Jury was impressed by the innovative methodology utilised by Parkland County, using ecological principles as a framework for landscape analysis and planning. The public engagement process was excellent and appropriate for a small, widely dispersed rural population. The plan was grounded in clearly articulated values and beliefs, and has been developed for integration with the county’s Community Sustainability & Development Plan (to be completed in 2016). It is a comprehensive document for a large geographic area, therefore on-the-ground validation will be needed which can be done in the context of individual development applications."
