Tumlin and fellow expert Brent Toderian provided insights into planning and city building, including how to build a vibrant, walkable and livable community.

The Abbotsforward project, Abbotsford’s official community plan update, is in the midst of a six-week public engagement campaign looking for input and ideas for Abbotsford’s future.

Residents are asked to share their vision and ideas through a number of ways, including taking an online survey, visiting a road show event, hosting a citizen circle with family or friends, and going on a neighbourhood walk with the Abbotsforward team.
