3. LETHBRIDGE RIVER VALLEY
PARKS MASTER PLAN + SUSTAINABILITY PLAN
LE PLAN DE DURABILITÉ ET LE PLAN DIRECTEUR DES
PARCS DE RIVER VALLEY À LETHBRIDGE
EN_THE LETHBRIDGE RIVER VALLEY is a powerful
example of a highly valued landscape structuring the form
of the city. The Valley provides numerous recreational
opportunities, and critical ecosystem services ranging from
slope stabilization and augmenting the area's resilience
to major flood events, to providing wildlife habitats that
build biodiversity.
With development pressures both within the Valley and
at its edges, however, the City of Lethbridge realized that
it lacked adequate tools to safeguard the Valley's longterm integrity. The City needed to protect the functioning
of the Valley's exceptional ecosystem, and preserve the
park experience which it provides. The Master Plan sets
a vision to guide how the Valley will be used, balancing
preservation of the ecosystem with other important uses.
The companion Sustainability Plan provides more detailed
management strategies to ensure a highly functioning and
ecologically healthy landscape. 
FR_LA VALLÉE DE LETHBRIDGE est un exemple éloquent
de la façon dont un paysage très apprécié peut structurer
la forme d'une ville. Cette zone ne regorge pas seulement
de possibilités récréatives : des services écosystémiques
essentiels, allant de la consolidation des talus à
l'augmentation de la résistance aux inondations majeures,
font que la vallée abrite de nombreux habitats fauniques
qui favorisent la biodiversité.
Toutefois, des pressions liées au développement se font
sentir, tant au cœur de la vallée qu'en sa périphérie, et la
Ville de Lethbridge a réalisé qu'elle n'avait pas les outils
nécessaires pour en préserver l'intégrité à long terme.
La Ville devait protéger l'écosystème exceptionnel de
la vallée, tout en préservant ses parcs et l'expérience
qu'ils procurent. Le plan directeur sert de guide pour la
façon d'utiliser la vallée et de trouver cet équilibre entre
la préservation de l'écosystème et les autres usages
importants qu'on veut faire de cet espace. Le plan de
durabilité qui accompagne le plan directeur fournit
davantage de détails sur les stratégies de gestion
à mettre en place pour profiter d'un paysage sain
et fonctionnel.
