The City of North Vancouver is planning a major renewal of their Waterfront Park. They would like to know how the municipality can engage diverse sections of the population on this project. Students developed a public engagement strategy for the Waterfront Park renewal project, focusing on the following demographics:
(1) youth (13-18 years old)
(2) non-English as a first language speakers, particularly those who may be new to Canada and/or community
(3) children (12 and under)
(4) City of North Vancouver population beyond the direct vicinity of the park (e.g. Central Lonsdale)
