Plan for Burnaby’s Green Future Wins Award of Excellence
Vancouver, BC: Burnaby’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy (ESS) was awarded an Excellence in Policy Planning Award in the City and Urban Areas Category by the Planning Institute of British Columbia (PIBC). The PIBC is a professional association of planners in BC which recognizes excellence and sets a national standard for planning schemes.
The plan outlined a green future for the city, one that would benefit both the public and shareholders seeking to develop in the area. PIBC recognized the ESS as an outstanding and in-depth guideline, and awarded it in hopes that it’ll serve as a role model plan for future planning projects. Integral Group is proud to have served as a supporting consultant on this planning project, which was developed with “extensive participation and input from the community,” as described by Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. The plan is one of the largest and most creative public consultation programs the City has ever undertaken.
