The beautiful Bow River Valley Corridor has been
experiencing intense pressure for new developments rang-ing
from golf courses and resorts to an aerial tramway.
Design Workshop prepared an award-winning assessment
of the visual impacts of development in the valley. Using
our computer capabilities, we were able to visually repre-sent
existing conditions and the potential changes devel-opment
would bring to the area. The final product was a
visual zoning map and set of guidelines for each landscape
type, which has played an integral role in assessing and
mitigating the effects of future development. ◆
