A Sunday Conversation Between Urbanists

A short while ago I wrote a post about Australian planner and author Wendy Sarkissian.  We had hoped that a meeting with her would take place and a public meeting has indeed now been arranged for this Sunday.

On Sunday afternoon in Mount Pleasant, Wendy Sarkissian and Ned Jacobs, son and collaborator of Jane Jacobs, will take to the stage, so to speak, for a conversation on densification and other planning issues.  Here is the meeting notice taken from our friends at CityHallWatch.

Densification Wars!
Community Planning in New South Wales and Vancouver:
A public conversation with Dr. Wendy Sarkissian, Ned Jacobs, and You!

 Sunday, January 19th, 2014. 3:45 – 5:45 pm
Location: 1 Kingsway (Mount Pleasant Community Centre, Multipurpose Room 2)
Just show up, or register online on EventBrite here. Inquiries: citizenYVR@gmail.com

The second half will, I understand, open up to questions from the floor. This should be a really good event for anyone interested in the future of Vancouver’s development.  Look forward to seeing you there!
