Planning for Newly Elected Officials: Community Planning Workshop SFU City Program - Continuing Studies Nov 19, 2022 : 9:30 am to 3:00 pm

SFU's City Program presents an online workshop designed specifically for newly elected officials. Led by professional planner Eric Aderneck, you'll receive an expert introduction to urban planning and how to build more sustainable, vibrant and inclusive communities and physical environments.

You will learn about the matters, purpose and practice of urban planning in British Columbia. This workshop will cover planning and development issues in the region, and the planner’s role in building cities, from the perspective of an elected official. We’ll explore the interrelationships between the physical, environmental, economic, social and built considerations in planning at site, neighbourhood, city and regional scales.

The workshop will outline the need to plan the roles of participants, stakeholders and decision-makers in planning and development processes. This includes a review of the regulatory hierarchies, and the application of land use tools, such as plans, policies, zoning, subdivision and other approvals.

Course materials and resources will be provided online just before the workshop begins.
