Sturgeon Partnership Recreation Master Plan
This consortium of six municipalities within the boundaries of the County of Sturgeon, just north of Edmonton, has retained Stantec and PERC to undertake a Recreation Master Plan for the region. The Plan will focus on a fair and equitable funding formula for financing recreation amenities, almost all of which are within the five incorporated communities within the County. Brian and Don Hunter will lead PERC efforts in support of Stantec for this project.
Whistler Cultural Plan
PERC has been retained to do the second Whistler Cultural Master Plan after completing the resort community's first 10 Year Cultural Plan in 2002. The challenge of this Plan is to find consensus between the three distinct and separate categories of stakeholders; namely the residents, the recreational property owners and the tourists. Margo Gram, PERC's newest Associate, will work with Brian on this project.
