Planning + Development

Community Masterplan

SFU Community Trust has been committed (and mandated) from the outset to plan and develop a community that honours the landscape and serves the university. Accordingly, the Trust began by establishing a Community Advisory Committee with membership drawn from SFU students, neighbouring residents, municipal planning staff and non-governmental organizations.

We developed a Community Vision and we conducted a major planning and design charrette in the year 2000, including four teams of urban design professionals prepared a series of conceptual designs and land use plans. The winning team, Hotson Bakker Architects (now Dialog) presented a master plan that best reflected community desires, in a way that would enable us to preserve or enhance natural habitat.
