Award Winning City Planning Consultant Coming to Kingston!

Brent Toderian, former chief planner for the City of Vancouver, will be in Kingston next week to speak at two very important events.

A Special Council Meeting on Wednesday January 17th (6pm – Memorial Hall) will provide Council and members of the public the opportunity to learn and offer thoughts on growth and intensification in Kingston.

The Kingston Climate Change Symposium is on Friday January 19th, from 1pm to 8pm, at the Grand Theatre.  Sustainable Kingston, in partnership with the City of Kingston, has arranged a series of “Ted-talk” style speakers, with Mr. Toderian talking about “The Livable and Sustainable City” at 2:45pm.

“Brent Toderian, of TODERIAN UrbanWORKS, is a renowned practitioner in advanced urbanism, city planning and urban design. He consults for cities and forward-thinking developers across Canada and the globe.” says Paige Agnew, Director of Planning, building and licensing services with the City of Kingston, on her January 10th 2018 Blog.

Melody Knott, Co-Chair of Future Kingston, and Chair of the Kingston Chamber of Commerce is excited to hear Mr. Toderian speak and believes “both of these events will be a fantastic and valuable opportunity to learn from one of the most highly sought-after teachers on City-Making and urbanism.”
