Desired Outcome Statements

  • Most neighbourhoods are compact, mixed-use and allow for a range of dwelling unit types increasing access to services and amenities.
  • Neighbourhoods are designed to be multi-modal and have greater access to transit, therefore reducing the need for motorized vehicles.
  • All buildings, infrastructure and facilities are accessible to support the needs of all residents.
  • There is a diversity of housing options, including a range of types, tenures and prices; housing options create equitable and inclusive neighbourhoods for all ages and abilities.
  • Homes are energy efficient and durable, conserve water, constructed with locally produced, reused, recycled and toxic-free building materials.
  • Land use planning and practices support a diverse economy and vibrant industries, protecting the identity of Quesnel and ensuring a clean, attractive and safe community for residents and visitors.
  • Neighbourhoods are designed to be energy efficient and to use infrastructure efficiently, with renewable energy systems providing energy to many buildings.
  • Land use planning recognizes and rewards sustainable developments through a collaborative process that engages the public and community partners.
  • Development is done in a way to ensure ecologically functioning natural areas remain intact and future generations enjoy the splendor of the biodiversity and greenspace for which Quesnel is known.
  • Neighbourhoods are vibrant, livable, are built on existing sites, and preserve the natural systems around them.
