Fournier Place Design Guidelines
The Fournier Place Design Guidelines were developed to implement a vision for a cohesive and high quality manufactured home community in Slave Lake, Alberta. This was part of a plan to rebuild the community after a devastating wildfire in 2011. The Design Guidelines will provide guidance to the Town, builders and lot owners by clearly defining the design requirements for public realm improvements and private lot development in the Fournier Place subdivision.
A total of 94 new residential units will be developed along with a central Community Common and several linear park spaces. The subdivision will be developed to accommodate 34 semi-detached units and 60 manufactured home lots. The Community Common will function as a central gathering place for residents to meet and mingle. Design elements may include a children’s playground, community garden plots, a centerpiece feature, and other amenities for residents. Lots in the centre of the subdivision will be developed with frontage facing the Community Common and central park space. Using this “eyes on the park” approach will help to increase safety and foster resident interaction.
