New ideas for packinghouse site
Oct 16, 2013 / 4:45 pm
A UBC landscape architecture graduate will give a presentation on her ideas for the Naramata packinghouse site this week.
The presentation, New Foundations for Naramata?, is Laura Macdonald's graduate thesis project and focuses on the site in the village core.
"I chose this site for my project, because Naramata as a community means a lot to me." she said. "So I wanted to see how I could bring the world of landscape architecture to Naramata. The broad topic of my investigation is tourism and the effects on sustainable community development."
In addition to her talk, Macdonald has crafted presentation boards which will be on display, along with slides on the big screen throughout. An informal question and answer type discussion will follow.
The Naramata Citizens Association, which is hosting the event, sees it as supporting initiatives that enhance the quality of life.
They stress it is not a development proposal, but a hypothetical design based on intensive research and design work.
The long-existing packinghouse was demolished in 2011. Most recently, the Regional District Okanagan Similkameen approved a temporary use permit for BC Tree Fruits Cooperative to crush the footings and concrete pad at the location.
Macdonald's presentation will be at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 18, at the Naramata Centre Loft, 3475 3rd Street.
