Niagara Community Design Award

GSP Group received a Niagara Region Community Design Award for the City of Port Colborne Downtown Central Business District Community Improvement Plan and Urban Design Study.

GSP Group, with RCI Consulting, received a Niagara Region Community Design Award in the Policy and Plans category for the City of Port Colborne Downtown Central Business District Community Improvement Plan. The plan recognizes the importance of a mix of uses, quality design, changes to the public and private realm, the heritage of the area, the relationship with the Welland Canal, and the need for tools to ensure the improvements can be realized. To support the plan, GSP Group prepared an Urban Design Strategy to provide a comprehensive approach for improvements to the physical built environment in Downtown Port Colborne, principally targeting public realm improvements that would act as catalysts for private sector investment.
