十九世纪末,以人工方式开挖的运河原意是把南普拉特河(South Platte River)的河水引入附近农地,以提供灌溉用水,但时至今天,依赖此原有功能的用水户已大大减少,河道的休闲功能反而更突出,在沿岸地方散步、跑步、骑自行车或骑马的人每年有超过五十万。随着大丹佛地区的人口急速膨胀,区域特质越来越多元化,水资源也变得弥足珍贵;作为负责任的自然资源管理者,我们有必要与时俱进,为高线运河构思出路。

Dug by hand in the late 1800s, the Canal was originally constructed as an irrigation ditch to bring South Platte River water to surrounding farmlands. Today, the Canal still serves as a water delivery method for a fraction of its original water users but has transformed into an increasingly recreational resource. More than 500,000 people use the Canal each year for walking, running, bicycling, and horseback riding. Today, as the Denver region experiences unprecedented growth in numbers and in diversity, and as water is an increasingly limited, precious resource; the High Line Canal is a prime example of how we, as responsible stewards, must look at the future differently than the past.

设计指导思想,Guiding principles

高线运河的最大挑战所在,就是水源本身。这条运河之所以受人爱戴,无非因为那里轻松闲适的氛围,人们可以在自然环境中享受片刻宁静,要延续这种自然气息,同时支撑起周边的生态系统, 河道的水量就必须充足。不过,种种因素例如区域水文条件和气候的变化,水权的新旧更替,用水户减少,还有蒸发率和渗漏率上升等等,都使这条人造运河的河水量一天比一天地少。在付费用水户取得河水之前,超过七成的河水早已被蒸发或渗漏流走,可见在讲究节水的这年头,以运河作为供水路线已不合时宜。因此,项目所探讨的是以保护河道的自然特质为前提的新型水资源管理方式。

Water is the number one issue facing the Canal. The Canal is beloved as a peaceful retreat—a place to enjoy a quiet moment in a natural setting. Yet, this natural character relies on the manmade Canal to provide water to sustain the ecosystem. The availability of water via the Canal is increasingly limited due to the region’s water context and changing climate, junior water rights, a declining number of customers, and the high rates of evaporation and seepage of the Canal. With more than 70% of water evaporating or seeping out before it reaches a paying customer, the Canal is not a responsible way to deliver water in today’s era of water conservation. The vision plan explores opportunities for new forms of stewardship to preserve the Canal’s natural character.

设计策略,Strategies

高线运河社区愿景规划从前瞻性角度对科罗拉多州芬兹山脉(Front Range)中一条备受欢迎的区域绿道提出保护与优化策略。从洛基山脉的山麓小丘到一望无际的大草原,全长近115公里的高线运河流经不同风景地貌,把区域中数以千计居民的生活连系起来,规划方案的开展,让参与者有机会集思广益,深思河道的前景,开拓美满丰盛的将来。

The Community Vision Plan for the High Line Canal is a forward-looking vision to preserve and enhance a beloved regional greenway in Colorado’s Front Range. The High Line Canal extends 71 miles from the foothills of the great Rocky Mountains to the expansive prairie. Bringing together thousands of residents from all over the region, this initiative inspired participants to think big about their vision for the Canal’s future.

高线运河社区愿景规划将绿道分为五个拥有不同主题的路段,The Community Vision Plan for the High Line Canal divided the greenway into 5 character zones

处于上游的“旷野峡谷”,The Wild Canyon

“起伏山丘”,Rolling Foothills

“茂木村庄”,Wooded Village

“城市避难所”,Urban Refuge

▼位于下游的“隐修草原”,Prairie Retreat

项目凝聚了当地社区的3,500多位市民,并结合40多位利益相关者、民选官员和城市规划人员的力量,整个规划过程为高线运河的未来写下相当有前瞻性的故事篇章。以“高线运河冒险旅程”为主题的一系列公众论坛引发人们开展一趟玩味十足的旅程,共同为运河的发展前景开启新一页。

Bringing together more than 3,500 community members, as well as more than 40 stakeholders, elected officials, and city planning staff, the process framed the Community Vision Plan as a forward-looking story of the Canal’s future. “Adventure on the High Line Canal”—branded to express a spirit of journey and an ambition to write a powerful forward-looking story—was a diverse, fun series of forums for public engagement.

方案以公众反馈为基础,定义了保护运河原始风貌的策略,设计访客在河道沿岸的观景和活动体验,思考未来与社区、伙伴机构和政府组织继续协作的途径。在公众参与过程中,不少人纷纷表示他们有兴趣探讨雨洪水的再利用方式,从而惠及毗邻地区,保护运河的自然特征,让世世代代都能享有如此珍贵的地球资源。

Built on this diverse feedback, the plan identifies opportunities for preserving the Canal’s character, strategies for celebrating the different experiences along the Canal, and ideas for continued collaborations with communities, partner organizations, and governmental agencies. The process also revealed great interest in exploring the opportunities of stormwater as a benefit for the surrounding areas, preserving the Canal’s natural character for future generations to enjoy.

以“故事”形式描绘运河的未来方向,是项目取得成功的关键,就像每一个伟大的故事都是激发想象、启迪思维的旅程一样,在项目的愿景规划进程中,无数深具影响力的创意概念徐徐诞生,启发着河道社区踏上可持续的将来。更重要的是,规划工作能做到海纳百川,带领众人朝着共同目标进发,所有与项目相关的司法管辖区第一次对愿景规划方案一致表示支持,让高线运河昂然迈进新时代。

Focusing on storytelling was integral to the success of this plan. Just as every great story is a journey that sparks imagination and excites the mind, the vision process illuminated a series of powerful ideas about the future of a great resource. Importantly, the inclusive process led to a shared vision—marking the first time that all jurisdictions have endorsed a common vision to guide the Canal’s future.
