If we can ThinkShawnigan, we can create it - by Sierra Acton Area B CVRD Director
No doubt Shawnigan Lake Village is the heart of our community. We all want to be proud of the place where we live, work and play. How do we insure we grow with connectivity and thoughtfulness? How do we keep our identity and at the same time meet the needs of our growing community? Our village has 13 acres of empty private land and many parks and public spaces. We have a special opportunity now to guide our village as it grows instead of trying to repair unsuccessful developments in the future.
From October 17th to October 19th the Shawnigan Lake Community will be involved in an Intensive Design and Planning process that will help shape the future look and feel of the Shawnigan Village. During this process we will look at the heart of the Village and the surrounding area. This intensive process will develop detailed three-dimensional drawings that will be grant and project ready. We have been gathering the communities’ input at events since this Spring and most recently at the ThinkShawnigan Gathering. So far, the common themes are: walking improvements, park enhancements, retail ideas/spaces and housing.
Mark your calendars to participate:
• October 17th Ideas Fair (Hear and add to what the designers have heard so far) 7-8:30pm
• October 18th Studio Drop-in (Watch the designers at work, See the ideas taking shape) 4-6pm
• October 19th Presentation of draft design concepts for the future Shawnigan Village 4:30-6:30pm
• All events are FREE and will be held at the Shawnigan Lake Community Centre! All welcome!!
After the intensive design process, the consultants will polish the results and share the final designs. This is anticipated for December 2019. Sign up to be kept informed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please get involved. Provide your input. Be part of the future of Shawnigan. More details:
