TransFORMation 2018 Workshop

A workshop exploring Vancouver’s most significant planning milestones of the year

What were the biggest moments in urban planning in Vancouver this year? What innovative and transformative decisions around land use, neighbourhood planning and development stood out for you in 2018?

The Vancouver City Planning Commission (VCPC) invites you to participate in our fourth annual workshop to identify those events, decisions and actions that might shape our city for years to come.

We’ve compiled a list of potential candidates and now we want your perspective. Join us for an evening of brainstorming and discussion with fellow urbanists – architects, artists, community leaders, developers and urban planners.

Your input will help define 2018’s emerging planning milestones. They will subsequently be widely circulated for further review. The results will be revealed on Feb. 4, 2019 at our Year-In-Review public panel event. Those that survive further scrutiny during the panel will become part of the Chronology of Planning and Development Milestones in Vancouver.

The workshop will be held at 7:00 p.m. (doors open at 6:30) on Monday, November 19, 2018 at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown.

We hope you can join us.  Spaces are limited. Please respond with your RSVP via Eventbrite no later than Tuesday, November 13, 2018. We hope to see you there.
