City of Lethbridge Advances Civic Common Redevelopment through Innovative Collaboration with Lethbridge College
The City of Lethbridge is joining forces with Lethbridge College's Centre for Technology, Environment & Design to propel the Civic Common redevelopment project forward through the Virtual and Augmented Reality Program.
As part of this collaboration, students enrolled in various courses, including Advanced Media Capture, will actively engage with the City to craft a myriad of digital assets. Notably, this includes the creation of a 3D model showcasing the envisioned transformation of the Civic Common area.
Working hand in hand with Lethbridge College provides the City with a unique opportunity to leverage the expertise of both students and instructors. This collaboration enriches the project with additional technical data and analysis, underscoring the importance of merging academic knowledge with real-world application.
Furthermore, this partnership offers students invaluable access to hands-on experiences that facilitate their learning and skill development in a practical setting. By engaging with the City on this initiative, students gain firsthand exposure to the complexities of urban redevelopment.
On Sunday, January 21, Tuesday, January 23, and Thursday, January 25, between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day, residents may see a drone flying around the areas of City Hall, the Yates Memorial Theatre, and the Old Provincial Court House. Emphasizing safety and compliance, the drone operations will be overseen by a licensed pilot who will adhere to all requisite federal and local regulations.
The City of Lethbridge looks forward to the unfolding collaboration with Lethbridge College, recognizing the mutual benefits that this innovative partnership brings to the Civic Common project and the education of the next generation of professionals in the field.
