Consulting firm engaged on urban design guidelines for Community Improvement Plan

by Patrick Raftis

MAPLETON - Council here has authorized staff to retain the services of Stempski Kelly Associates Inc. to facilitate creation of urban design guidelines for the municipality’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP).

Council accepted the company’s proposal for up to $9,837 plus HST at the May 9 meeting.

The company scored the highest on a ranking scale out of three submitting proposals.

“The next step in implementing the CIP is to have urban design guidelines in place to support the consistent approach in the development of financial support programs for storefront business in Mapleton’s downtown cores,” states a report from economic development coordinator Martin Bohl.

“Designing urban guidelines will support a consistent approach in façade and building improvements, signage updates, landscaping, greenscaping, accessibility and sustainability within the approved CIP.”

The report indicates council has approved $15,000 for design-related projects in 2017. The remainder of the funding will be allocated to a municipal signage plan.

Future support for the CIP will be discussed at budget meetings, the report notes.

Moving on

It was also noted at the May 9 meeting that Bohl will be moving on from his contract position in Mapleton. He has accepted a position with the City of Brampton.

Bohl has been working in Mapleton on a contract position since November, filling in for the economic development coordinator Jaclyn Dingwall, who is currently on leave.

Bohl thanked councillors for their support during his time in Mapleton.

“It’s been a great experience,” he stated.
