Approved: Athabasca Power Centre Area Structure Plan
The Athabasca Power Centre Area Structure Plan (ASP) was prepared by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in collaboration with CitySpaces Consulting. The Athabasca Power Centre ASP is a long-term plan that will enable a big box (or “power centre”) commercial shopping development along Highway 63. The Athabasca Power Centre site is approximately 72 acres in size, and is located immediately north of TaigaNova Eco-Industrial Park and east of the future Highway 63 interchange to Parsons Creek.
Key components of the ASP were prepared during an intensive three day design charrette held on March 27th, 28th and 29th, 2014 at the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre. A charrette is a design-oriented workshop that brings together a variety of stakeholders to generate solutions to planning problems in a collaborative environment. Over 60 residents and 17 industry representatives provided valuable input during open houses that were held throughout the course of the charrette. The plan was approved by Council on October 14, 2014.
Please note that amendments to these plans are consolidated on a quarterly basis.
