Marwell Plan-a-Thon Materials - June 6-8

Over 150 people - including representatives from local/Territorial/First Nation governments, stakeholders, and the public – participated in the June 6-8 Plan-a-Thon sessions held for the Marwell Plan. Thanks to everyone who came out! The primary purposes of the Plan-a-Thon were for the project team to report back on what was heard during the April Future Forum and other engagement events through May, to share what we've learned so far, and to begin evaluating and confirming potential planning directions for the Downtown and Marwell Plans. Draft renderings and concept plans from the design stations were also developed to visually capture some of the main ideas being explored for the Downtown and Marwell plan areas. The draft concepts will be refined during future phases of the planning process (Phases 3 and 4). Click the links below for the Marwell draft concepts.For the Downtown concepts please go here.
