The short list of significant planning and development events proposed for discussion at the January 26 panel event was generated at workshops hosted by the Planning Commission two weeks before.
Workshop participants included subject experts and urban professionals active in planning and development in the city. They were asked to consider the question:
“What were the defining decisions, actions and events of 2015 in planning and development that could prove to be transformative in Vancouver’s evolution?”
In lively table discussions, facilitated by urban studies students and Planning Commissioners, two workshop groups created an extensive list of notable events and actions of 2015 seen as having the potential for becoming milestones in the evolution of Vancouver as a city – potential ‘game changers,’ transforming how we see or do planning and development in the city, or affecting the city in some other profound way.
Through plenary group reporting, and further comments and discussion, the list was pared down to 15 significant events to take forward to the public panel discussion event on January 26.
