Simon Fraser University is bringing its popular free city program public lectures to the Surrey campus on Jan. 20.

The 7 p.m. lecture features guest speakers Joe Minnicozzi, an urban design consultant from North Carolina and Ian Lockwood, a Florida-based transportation planner.

The city program is based out of the Harbour Centre campus, and involves both public lectures, professional development courses and an urban design certificate program.

The Surrey talk, cosponsored by the Greater Vancouver regional district (GVRD), Translink, Transport Canada, City of Surrey, SFU Surrey and the SFU city program, takes place on Jan. 20 in the mezzanine at Central City, 10345 102 Ave., near the Surrey Central SkyTrain station.

The talk is part of a two-day brainstorming session on creating a pedestrian-oriented community around the SkyTrain station.

“Basically the project is all about building places that promote more walking, transit use and less car driving,” according to Christina DeMarco, a senior planner with the GVRD.

The lecture is open to the public, but reservations are required. Call 604-291-5100 or email cs_hc@sfu.ca.
