The team made the trip up to Paddle Prairie Métis Settlement and the community was eager to share their views and input on the Land Use Plan that will help shape the future of the Settlement. The community has been actively involved in providing invaluable input into this unique plan.
This innovative Land Use Plan is the first of a kind for a Métis Settlement in Canada and is helping set the community up to align with their strategic vision of self-reliance and prosperity through the maintenance of culture and community.
How many people? How many dwellings? How can we collaborate better? When is development happening? – ProACTIVE has completed land use and development encroachment studies for our major pipeline operator clients for nearly 4 years.
Some of the highlights include the following:
- Over 22,000 km of infrastructure reports completed
- Spanning one dozen provinces and dozens of states
- Approximately 200 developers engaged and collaborated, and,
- Over 250 cities, towns, municipalities, and Indigenous communities participated in our studies.
Our goal is to enhance collaboration on development around pipelines with ALL stakeholders, improve capital planning for operators, and promote safe development and the safe operation of pipeline infrastructure in the built environment. We combine our land use planning expertise, GIS and database management processes, and unparalleled engagement practices to ensure all information is obtained.
