Project Description
GSA is currently working with the City of Fort Saskatchewan to complete the final revisions to the Downtown Land Use Bylaw. While working at planningAlliance, GSA principal Dnyanesh Deshpande led all aspects of this project including project management, urban design and planning. The project includes updating Land Use Bylaw Districts and regulations to align with the City’s recently approved Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan. GSA is currently leading the approval portion of this project including preparation of final drafts and Council presentations. Dnyanesh also led the extensive public consultation process undertaken for this project involving citizen surveys, multi-stakeholder workshops and open houses to seek citizen input. A series of customised urban design illustrations were also created to highlight the proposed built forms envisioned for various precincts in the downtown.
