Despite being surrounded by water, Vancouver doesn’t have a comprehensive waterfront plan. This November, City Council will vote on a number of motions that impact our water and so it’s the perfect time to hear from Roland Lewis, President of the NYC’s Waterfront Alliance.

New York established a comprehensive planning model for its waterfront to establish a clear vision that includes working, living, ecosystems, transportation and access. He’ll share what he’s learned advocating for, supporting, and now monitoring this plan and how it’s shaped the city.

This event is hosted by the Georgia Strait Alliance, who for the past five years has led the Waterfront Initiative – a stakeholder-led movement to bring this level of thinking and vision to Vancouver’s waterfront.

This event will be held at the Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue on October 28, from 7-10pm. To register for this event please click here.
