Planning experts Jeffrey Tumlin and Brent Toderian will be in Abbotsford on Feb. 25 for an evening talk at The Reach about building a better city.
The event promises to provide insights into planning and city building, including how to build a vibrant, walkable and livable community. Doors to the event open at 6:30 p.m. The evening will include talks from each guest followed by questions from the audience.
“Abbotsforward is already shaping up as a once-in-a-generation conversation about new visions and ideas for the city at 200,000 people, and we’ve just gotten started. But every big, better idea comes with tough choices and important gut-check moments. Smart, successful cities are embracing those moments, are doing better math on smarter city-making, and are rethinking business-as-usual,” said Toderian.
Space for the event is limited, but reservations are not required.
The Abbotsforward project 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.
