Case Study

Overview  

Public Assembly worked with Dockside Green, to develop and realize a public consultation strategy that has reconnected residents, surrounding neighbourhood groups, and the developer in a new process of collaborative design.

Creative Solutions

Between May and September 2014, Dockside Green initiated a community dialogue process that brought hundreds of residents, community members, business people and engaged citizens together to contribute to a vision for a renewed neighbourhood plan.

The process, informed by recognized public engagement standards and grounded in a set of emerging core principles, has offered a rewarding opportunity for the Dockside Green team to connect and collaborate with the community.

The outcomes have included widespread buy-in for a community plan that includes significant new public spaces and programming, yet has required trade-offs on environmental standards and community amenities.
