Community Placemaking Initiative
The goal of the Community Placemaking Initiative is to beautify the community, enhance the public life of streets and common spaces, and strengthen the sense of place – capturing and celebrating the geography, history, culture and lifestyle that make Fort McMurray unique. These placemaking principles will be applied to the enhancement of streets, roadways and common spaces within our downtown area, highway corridors and suburban neighbourhoods.
A key objective of the Community Placemaking Initiative is to develop a design vocabulary of streetscaping, landscape treatments, street furnishings, public art, signage and similar design elements. These placemaking elements will constitute a visual brand that is comprehensive, consistent, and at the same time meaningful and memorable.
