Event description

Description

The Vancouver City Planning Commission is pleased to present Milestones 2017 on February 5, 2018. Our third annual Year in Review public forum, it’s a look back that invariably turns into a dialogue about the future of the city.

Four leading urban thinkers and achievers will discuss 2017 decisions and events in planning and development that have been identified as possibly having a transformative influence on the evolution of Vancouver. The panellists will also offer their own ideas on proposed milestones of 2017 and respond to suggestions from the audience.

The emerging milestones of 2017 will be added to the online Chronology of Planning and Development in Vancouver.

Milestones 2017 is being presented in partnership with SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement.


Background

The Vancouver City Planning Commission has been working with planners, architects, landscape architects, developers, urban historians, academics and engaged urbanists to compile a list of significant planning and development milestones from the time of early First Nations settlement to the present.

The result is an online chronology that provides snapshots of events that shaped the evolution of the city, including Council decisions, real estate developments, federal housing investments, regional plans, introduction of new transportation technologies, social policy innovations and environmental restoration. The chronology is updated every year after the annual Year-In-Review public forum. Visit our website to learn more.
