Showcasing Innovation in the City of Surrey – June 2006
The City of Surrey believes it is ‘walking the sustainability talk’ and is demonstrating regional leadership by proactively implementing a design with nature approach to green infrastructure practices. The Showcasing Innovation Series therefore created a timely opportunity for the City to share the lessons learned from these three projects:
- EAST CLAYTON SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY – This project set the pace regionally by demonstrating how to move from talk to action in implementing smart development principles and practices. To view the presentation by David Hislop (City of Surrey Project Engineer, Drainage Planning), click on East Clayton Sustainable Community –Three Years Later.
- CAMPBELL HEIGHTS INDUSTRIAL AREA – Through innovative design and landscaping requirements enforced through restrictive covenants, this project is demonstrating substantial progress in meeting watershed objectives. To view the presentation by Remi Dubé, City of Surrey Drainage Planning Manager, click on Campbell Heights Industrial Area: Meeting Watershed Objectives.
- FERGUS WATERSHED – Building on lessons learned from the East Clayton experience, the City is developing an on-the-ground action plan for watershed protection and restoration over the next 50 years. Jim Dumont (Project Manager, Fergus Creek ISMP Consulting Team), Remi Dubé, and Judy McLeod (Manager, Long Range Planning, City of Surrey) collaborated to provide the engineering and planning perspectives for Fergus Watershed: Beyond the Creek.
