A year after the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, the public is still asking what went wrong (and right) with the Olympic Village project. What could have been done differently? What are the housing, planning and other policy lessons?
PlanTalk: Housing and Development Lessons from the Olympic Village, will be led by an expert panel that includes developer Michael Geller, UBC Associate Vice President Nancy Knight and SFU Professor Doug McArthur, and city councilor Geoff Meggs. The forum will be moderated by Vancouver journalist and blogger Frances Bula. Co-sponsored by Think City, SFU School of Public Policy and the Planning Institute of BC's South Coast chapter, the discussion will take place from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m at the Segal Business School at Pender and Granville. Admission is $25 ($15 for students), registration is recommended. Here's the SFU link to the event
