Livable and Sustainable Jericho Lands: a New, innovative Neighbourhood for Vancouver? Oct 23

October 23, 2014

2014 SFU Public Square Community Summit Special Edition

Can Vancouver create a new neighbourhood that is beautiful, interesting and joyful — and which also creates its own energy, uses its own water, and produces no waste? Could the Jericho Lands— the military base across W. Fourth Ave from Jericho Beach Park — be that neighbourhood? The military is leaving, and 62 acres will be owned by a partnership of the federal government, three First Nations tribes and the City. Vancouver has been a North American leader in creating innovative, livable and sustainable neighbourhoods, starting with Southeast False Creek. What can we learn from first-generation livable and sustainable European neighbourhoods, to become world leaders?

Exploring this amazing opportunity are Joyce Drohan, Director of Urban Design at Perkins + Will, Vancouver, a lead member of the design team for Vancouver’s first livable and sustainable community, Southeast False Creek; and Maged Senbel, an Associate Professor, UBC School of Community and Regional Planning, who focuses on engaging the public in long term neighbourhood planning.
