We answer this question with write-up about our current Area Structure Plan at Thomson Flats in Kelowna.
An Area Structure Plan (ASP) is a statement of what a specific neighborhood / area wants to achieve and how it will grow and evolve in terms of the social, economic, and environmental realms. Area structure plans address a level of neighbourhood planning greater than household size but smaller than that of a city. The resulting planning document provides the framework for making future decisions about how a municipality should allocate resources within a defined area or boundary, identify what kinds of development activity is appropriate, and how the development will be serviced (i.e. water, drainage, sanitary sewer, transportation).
