The Town of Bor­den Car­leton has been se­lected as the 2018 re­cip­i­ent of the Murray Pinchuk Com­mu­nity Builder Award for its work on the plan ‘Des­ti­na­tion Bor­den-Car­leton’.

The award was pre­sented Fri­day, in Char­lot­te­town to cel­e­brate World Town Plan­ning Day. Plan­ners in 30 coun­tries mark the day by pre­sent­ing to com­mu­nity or stu­dent groups, or spon­sor­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that high­light the im­por­tance of plan­ning in their com­mu­nity.

The Murray Pinchuk Com­mu­nity Builder Award is a lo­cal award pre­sented by the Prince Ed­ward Is­land As­so­ci­a­tion of Plan­ners to rec­og­nize an in­di­vid­ual, group or or­ga­ni­za­tion that has through their out­stand­ing vol­un­teerism or ex­em­plary ac­tion demon­strated an ex­tra­or­di­nary com­mit­ment to mak­ing their com­mu­nity a bet­ter place to­day and for the fu­ture. The Bor­den-Car­leton sub­mis­sion was rec­og­nized for pos­i­tively cre­at­ing a tourism, spa­tial master plan for the town. This plan was pre­sented to the pub­lic in De­cem­ber of 2017 and com­pleted in Jan­uary of 2018. Fund­ing for its de­vel­op­ment was sourced through the MacCain Fund.

The pur­pose of this plan “Des­ti­na­tion Bor­den-Car­leton” is to in­crease the town’s des­ti­na­tion po­ten­tial.

The plan is the guid­ing doc­u­ment to set a clear path for the fu­ture of tourism, com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment, de­sign and eco­nomic vi­tal­ity for the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

The plan places em­pha­sis tan­gi­ble steps and a num­ber of rec­om­men­da­tions to help Bor­den-Car­leton be­come a wel­com­ing gate­way, com­mu­nity and premier des­ti­na­tion.
