Congress for New Urbanism (CNU) Cascadia Chapter
Date of Event: 
Friday, November 6, 2015 (All day) to Sunday, November 8, 2015 (All day)

Granville Island’s TheatreSports Venue + Walking Tours Summit Website + Registration: www.cnucascadia.org/2015-cnu-cascadia-summit Early Bird Registration Open until October 14! What will we do? Let's sharpen the pencils and let’s get down to the business . . . of building more walkable, healthy, vibrant, economically thriving green neighbourhoods in the Pacific Northwest. CNU-C, as an advocate for pedestrian-oriented, sustainable urban design, is “growing the tent” to include those with “skin in the game”. The Vancouver Summit 2015 has two major goals. The first focus is to encourage the implementation of walkable neighbourhood design through informal business networking by a broad range of actors and decision makers interested in green city building. The second goal is to start building relationships with First Nations, as this community takes on larger roles in a variety of developments in BC and elsewhere, and to find opportunities for collaborative learning. Who Should Attend? Developers, landscape architects, architects, BIAs, community economic development consultants, urban designers, municipal planners, engineers, health officials, transportation planners, mortgage brokers, First Nations, planning commissioners, elected officials, mayors, small business owners, realtors, citizen advocates, and others.
