The Smart & Connected Community

Wind Walk is a ‘Smart and Connected Community’ dedicated to the implementation of sustainable and innovative measures for low impact and high-performance infrastructure and development.

Wind Walk is actively adopting programs and measures to set the development apart and reflect the Town’s Vision and Mission Statement that “Okotoks is a leader in sustainability, driven by an involved, connected and creative community.”

  • Investigation and implementation of solar energy solutions to solar power generation for individual homes, potentially including the ability to sell excess energy back to the grid and the use of complete solar monitoring systems for individual homeowners.
  • Solar panel implementation for Joint Use Site school buildings with potential adoption for commercial and multi-unit buildings as well.
  • Water wise and drought tolerant plant material adapted to local climate and soil conditions.
  • Plant material layering designed to reduce urban “heat island” effect.
  • Site contouring to promote water filtration and absorption into the soil.
  • Minimize the use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals.
  • Partnering with manufacturers, suppliers and builders to implement low-flow and conservation appliances and equipment in homes.
  • Provide for street-oriented live-work units in central locations along major roads, allowing residents to work where they live while maintaining a pedestrian-oriented and consistent streetscape.
  • Contextual mixed use site adjacent to the commercial site vertically integrates commercial and residential uses.
  • Wind Walk will provide multi-use pathways for the use of pedestrians, joggers, runners and cyclists, and will provide dedicated cycling facilities at community destinations.
  • Dark sky principles implemented in the individual design and installation of individual light sources to direct light downwards, and in the overall planning of lighting in the Plan Area.
  • Fibre infrastructure is as important as any other utility in a forward thinking community like Wind Walk.
  • Fibre is the most advanced and efficient technology available today to deliver the Internet to your doorstep.
  • Axia will be providing speed of light Internet connectivity to all units at Wind Walk with its Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) technology.
  • FTTP technology delivers a dedicated strand of fibre to each premise, allowing symmetrical upload and download speeds, and unlimited data usage.
  • With Axia’s open access model, residents can also choose providers – eliminating the uncompetitive nature of the traditional phone, internet and television package – creating and sustaining a price-competitive environment.
