President's Faculty Lecture with Peter V. Hall

In a Suburb Near You: Ports and Waterfronts in Metropolitan Perspective

The past three decades have seen substantial growth in Metro Vancouver. And being a community by the sea means our cities’ ports have been challenged to respond to, but also had major influence on, this growth—through employment, land use, infrastructure investment, and governance.

Join Professor Peter V. Hall as he traces the evolution of ports and their place in the post-industrial urban economy. He’ll discuss how the urban policy and planning challenges of port development have shifted and suggest ways to improve relationships between the port industry, cities and communities in future.
