On Tuesday, July 24, MABRRI’s team of community planners held a Visioning Forum in Campbell River to consult with community members to get their opinions on the future of the Campbellton, one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods.  Together with the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association, the students are working on a plan for the neighbourhood’s future beautification initiatives. Prior consultation had given us a list of ideas, and this event was aimed at getting the community’s input on some specific beautification initiatives that could be. So, armed with a stack of sticky notes and a collection of colourful posters covered in maps and precedent images, the students got community members to write down their thoughts on the various proposed initiatives and to tell us what their favourites were. Unfazed by the blinding summer sun and one of the hottest days of the year, the students managed to get a good amount of useful information from the community which will help guide the plan and revitalize the neighbourhood of Campbellton!
