Active Neighbourhoods Marlborough

Active Neighbourhoods has been partnering with the Marlborough Community Association since 2016 to find out the good, the bad and the “meh” of its public spaces.

Based on this body of work, the community portrait below provides a snapshot of the neighbourhood – what is the current state of its built and social environment?  How do residents feel about it?  What changes would they like to see?

The information in the community portrait fed into the 2017 Urban Design Invitational, where designers and decision-makers developed a series of “design schemes” (below) for Marlborough.

Design schemes then went back to residents for feedback at the Design Selection Kiosk at the 2017 Marlborough Stampede Breakfast.
