Please join me for my next community engagement session. On November 24th (7-8pm), I’ll be joined by thought leaders in regional planning and UBC staff spearheading development on the UBC Peninsula for what promises to be an engaging panel and discussion on Complete Communities.
This session is based on the premise that our communities are in a constant state of change. These changes can make our communities better or worse depending of different factors such as affordability, density, access to green and other community spaces, amenities, diversity, and access to public transportation.
The session will begin with a presentation by Metro Vancouver Director of Regional Planning, Sean Galloway. He will present the latest evidence on the factors that contribute to a “complete” or “healthy” community. Sean will be followed by Michael White, UBC’s Associate Vice President of Campus and Community Planning, who will provide an overview of the vision and plans for development of the UBC residential areas. Our final speaker will be Dr. Andy Yan, Director of SFU’s City Program, who will help provide regional context, as well as his insights on this important issue. We will ensure that there is plenty of time for a facilitated and respectful discussion among community members, and with our guest speakers.
