Main streets can be seen as cultural landscapes, which evolve and change over time. The panel discussion for this event will address questions such as: What features contribute to the character of main streets? How can this character be maintained, while allowing our main streets to evolve? How can we ensure our main streets are attractive spaces for shops, businesses and customers? A general discussion with the audience follows and at the end, everyone will be invited to submit feedback on the evening’s topic to the consultants leading the Heritage Action Plan. This event is made possible by the generous support of SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement and the City of Vancouver.
