Future and Past: Planners and Planning in the City of Vancouver

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 7:00 PM

Once again, the City of Vancouver is looking for a new planner director. What should we be looking for — and what are the challenges a new planner must face?

The SFU City Program is bringing together some of the the City's previous planning directors.

  • Ray Spaxman
  • Ann McAfee
  • Larry Beasley
  • Brent Toderian

We're asking them to identify the questions we should be asking not just of the candidates but of ourselves: What vision for our city are we asking of our planner, staff and council?  How do we generate the enthusiasm and capacity to build partnerships — and a passion for our city and region? Come join us.


Date: Thursday, October 29, 2015, 7–8:30 p.m.

Admission: Free, but reservations are required. Reserve

Venue: Room 1400, SFU Harbour Centre, 515 W Hastings St, Vancouver
