Description

On Saturday September 25th, PPT is hosting a free, public city building forum called “A City for Everyone” at Ryerson University.

Expert speakers (including Joe Berridge of Urban Strategies, Gil Penalosa of 8:80 Cities and Zahra Ebrahim of Architext) will spend the morning giving short and provocative presentations on topics such as mobility, urban design and environmental sustainability.

The afternoon will break attendees into round table working sessions to create suggested principles for Toronto’s next Official Plan, practical suggestions for improving community engagement in city planning, and action-oriented questions for mayoral candidates, to be asked at the October 7 debate.

Admission is free but space is limited. Register at www.peopleplantoronto.org.

From their press release:

"PPT believes that citizens have become too far removed from the planning process. Urban planning has a huge impact on issues that affect us all, including affordable housing, transportation, the environment, public safety and the beautification of our city. The next term of council will see the City appoint a new Chief Planner and conduct a review of the Official Plan. Torontonians are hungry to be involved."
