Squamish Employment Lands Strategy

Client: District of Squamish

Date: 2014

EcoPlan worked with the District of Squamish on the development of an Employment Lands Strategy for the district municipality. The project builds off the District’s current planning work (e.g., OCP and Zoning update, Downtown Neighbourhood Plan, Oceanfront Development) to help ensure that employment lands are available and used to their full potential for the community’s benefit and economic development. To incorporate a structured, strategic planning process, the project included the development of employment scenarios to help the District determine the best approach for the likeliest future scenario, and be prepared to accommodate significant development opportunities (e.g., Wood Fibre LNG plant) that will significantly impact employment land in the region.
