August 20: City Conversations – Re-Imagining Downtown Vancouver
Time:  12:30pm   Place:  Lot 19 Park, 855 West Hastings Street (North end of Hornby St. at West Hastings St.)    Cost:  Free. No registration required.

Our downtown is changing—we want to hear from you about where it’s headed. What do you love about downtown Vancouver? What needs to change? How can we make this community one of the best in the world in which to live, work, play and learn?

To help get you thinking about the possibilities for the future of our downtown Vancouver over the next 25 years, we have invited three guests to present their visions.  Lance Berelowitz, a planner, urban designer, award-winning writer and commentator will look at the evolution of downtown Vancouver's urban planning and design culture. Keltie Craig from the City of Vancouver will share her vision for downtown as a "healthy city." Rounding out the panel will be the Very Reverend Peter Elliott, Dean and Rector of Christ Church Cathedral Vancouver, who will discuss his hopes for social inclusion and community building in downtown Vancouver.
