The City in 2050: Mayor Gregor speaks to ULI

As many of you know, over the years I have had a close association with the Urban Development Institute, having served as both local and national presidents. For this reason, some questioned why I would join the Urban Land Institute (ULI) which is very active in the US and for the past few years has had a chapter in Vancouver.  It's because it also brings together a broad cross-section of people in the planning and development communities.

Next week, the Mayor will be speaking at ULI and while I will have to miss him since I must attend a University of Calgary WCDT Board meeting in Calgary that day, I expect it will be an interesting talk, especially for those in public and private sector planning, and the development industry.  I'm sure he'll be talking about affordable housing, amongst other things.....Here are the details.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
structure of your website? Its very well written; I
love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a
little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Amazing! I'm really enjoying the design and style of your weblog. Are you using a custom made theme or is this readily available to all individuals? If you really don't want to say the name of it out in the general public,
please be sure to email me at: I'd absolutely love to get my hands on this template! Many thanks.

Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?
If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
I had to tell someone!

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your website. It appears as though some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen previously.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done a
superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.
Outstanding Blog!
