LEES+Associates was engaged by the District of Summerland to complete the Powell Beach Park Management Plan. As a popular local park, the LEES team had to balance recreation and conservation design, tasked with enhancing recreational opportunities, restoring ecological functioning and providing flood management strategies and designs for future protection.
Ecological enhancements included shoreline/riparian ecosystem restoration, the creation of a conservation zone and flood restoration work, while recreational design such as playground concepts and universally accessible design were essential to the Management Plan.
The LEES team was responsible for creating management objectives and strategies for the park, delineating management zones, and developing policies/ principles and actions for each zone. The plan included visual base maps and graphics to supplement the plan and gain project support from the public.
