Event - Smart Growth 2015 Forum

The Smart Growth 2015 Forum will take place on March 24, 2015, at the Thomas Lounge, Oakham House, Ryerson University, 55 Gould Street, Toronto, Ontario. The Ontario Smart Growth Network (OSGN) is hosting a forum in Toronto for its members and others interested in smart growth in Ontario. The forum follows up on recent research conducted by OSGN about how to increase understanding and promote wide stakeholder engagement around smart growth in Ontario.

The forum will bring together people from various sectors to share information about various approaches and terms used to describe smart growth including building walkable communities, urban villages, complete streets, new urbanism, LEED-ND and other approaches to healthy community design.

Morning speakers include the Ontario Growth Secretariat presenting on the upcoming reviews of the Greenbelt and Growth Plans for the Greater Golden Horseshoe. The forum will also feature perspectives from others engaged in smart growth work including the land development industry, planners, public health and not-for-profit sectors. Presentation themes include evaluating developments — how do we know if it’s smart growth as well as how to best engage the broader public in planning for smart growth. A complete list of speakers will be announced shortly.

In the afternoon, there will be time for discussion, networking and an opportunity to promote your work to a broad range of people.

The cost is $40 per person (includes lunch)and the deadline to register is March 16, 2015.
