The ASP Process
In 2015, the Town of Canmore (the Town), and QuantumPlace Developments Ltd. (QPD), as representatives of Three Sisters Mountain Village Properties Ltd. (TSMV) embarked on a collaborative process to work through the development of the Smith Creek ASP. The collaborative process was an opportunity for TSMV, the Town and the community to have input into a vision for Smith Creek and the remaining Three Sisters lands more broadly, as well as to address some long-standing issues that required a collaborative effort and understanding to be resolved.
The collaborative ASP process involved working with the Town, the Community Advisory Group (CAG) and the wider community to identify opportunities and concerns from a diverse number of perspectives. Through the collaborative process, the Project Team (QPD and the Town) sought to find outcomes to create an ASP that balances economic, social, environmental and technical considerations.
