Planning team wins Excellence Award from CIP.

Wolfville’s Planning team led by Director, Devin Lake, received an Award for Planning Excellence for the extensive work carried out during the review of the Town’s Planning Documents with support from Fathom Studios, FoTenn, Hatch Engineering and CBCL.

The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) has honoured 13 projects, from across Canada, with a 2020 Award for Planning Excellence. The annual awards, which recognize innovation, impact on the profession, overall presentation, and implementation potential, are the highest level of recognition the Institute bestows on professional planning projects.

Mayor Jeff Cantwell was delighted with the news: ‘This is fantastic stuff, well deserved and has to be shouted to the highest!’

Director, Devin Lake advised ‘We are very happy that our work over the last 5 years on the Town’s Planning documents has not only been formally approved by Council, but also recognized by the Institute of Planning; it’s great news!
