Waterfronts and Livable Cities seminar on Nov 5This seminar, organized by APEGBC Victoria Branch in partnership with Planning Institute of BC, Urban Development Institute Capital Region and the Institute of Transportation Engineers, will use proven principles and international best practices to examine how cities around the world are strengthening their cities and waterfronts with better urban design and place-making.

About the Speaker
