The Okotoks Environmental Park " Anti-litter Campaign"
Written by the students of Dr. Gibson School
the town of Okotoks, before a housing development can begin, town planners
are required to set aside a parcel of land that can be turned into an
environmental park. The standard size for all of the environmental parks
within Okotoks must have a perimeter of 2400 meters. In order for the
citizens of Okotoks and the visitors from Millarville and Red Deer Lake
to enjoy this natural environmental park, a total of 14 paths must be
provided for biking, walking, rollerblading throughout the park or to
access to the man made lake. The lake, which has an area of approximately
500 square meters is planned for the center of the environmental park.
The developers need your help to create a plan for this environmental park that includes 14 paths and placement of fewer than 11 litter bins. Submit your plan by June 22nd.
