Westminster Pier Park wins Brownie award

The Westminster Pier Park project has won the 2011 Brownie award given out by the Canadian Urban Institute to recognize leadership and innovation in sustainable remediation technologies and excellence in project development at the neighbourhood scale.

"This award, like Westminster Pier Park, truly belongs to the citizens of New Westminster and all residents can feel justifiably proud of this achievement," said Mayor Wayne Wright in a city press release.

The awards jury was comprised of 10 professional and industry association representatives.

"This award is reflective of the innovate work the city, our consultants and contractors have been doing as we transform a large former industrial section of our waterfront into a park for everyone to enjoy," said city engineer Jim Lowrie.
