Les amis,

You may find the following seminar presentation and panel to be of interest to our efforts to promote urban agriculture and greener development within the GTA region.

Proper planning is vital if we are to re-develop some level of self-sufficiency as well as tackling our current waste crisis, transport problems, pollution issues and climate change.

Thank you Florence Chung for kindly sending this my way (and offering to host Christmas Dinner for Vlad and I).

Oh yeah, better register while there’s still space! I hear from Florence that these things fill up quick!

Shaping the Region

a two-part seminar series

Part 2: Planning for Intensification

January 8, 2009
4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

The Neptis Foundation has commissioned several studies that examine planning policies in the context of Ontario’s new Growth Plan for the Toronto metropolitan region. In the second of this two-part series, the findings from two research projects will be presented.

Marcy Burchfield will discuss how research on past rates of intensification may inform the process of implementing the Growth Plan’s residential intensification target. Following on the intensification theme, Pierre Filion will present research on the history of policy and urban form in urban growth centres through the examination of several existing centres.
