Workshop for Sherwood Forest Public School site

Workshop for Sherwood Forest Public School site
Thursday, February 9, 2012, 7 pm
Location: Canada Games Aquatic Centre, main floor meeting room

Fanshawe College students and faculty from the GIS and Urban Planning and Landscape Design Programs will be conducting a Design Charrette for the Sherwood Forest Public School site. We hope this process will influence any future development of the site. Having a charrette was overwhelmingly supported at the community meeting in November.

Design charrettes create and evaluate preferred future forms of development. Students receive input and ideas from the community and prepare urban design and landscape drawings/reports of the site, showing possibilities for buildings, landscaping, and parking using leading edge ideas for development and sustainability.

You are invited to a workshop to be held on Thursday, February 9, 2012 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, main floor meeting room. You are invited to share ideas and comments on the site: strengths and opportunities; challenges and constraints; vision for lands, buildings, and landscaping; form and type of land use.

The workshop should last approximately one and a half hours. The meeting will include a welcome and introduction; discussion tables of 8 – 10 people; note taking by a recorder; and shared feedback to the entire workshop. A summary of comments and ideas will be prepared and given to the students.
After the student projects are created and evaluated, the students and faculty will give a presentation of the best ideas on Wednesday, March 21 at 7 pm at the Church of the Transfiguration, 33 Bromleigh Ave.

If you have any questions or comments please contact: Sandy Levin, president, Orchard Park/Sherwood Forest Ratepayers at or 519-472-9576 or Professor William Pol
