Friday, May 4 | 12 - 1:15 p.m.
Finding Opportunity in the Rural/Urban Divide
Joe Barth and Elliot Currie, Professors at the University of Guelph
While urban growth is reshaping North America, not all rural communities are in decline. Opportunities to offer unique experiences and services exist for rural communities that know their market, differentiate their offering, and lead in cost strategy. Agglomeration economies benefit from clustering and collective use of infrastructure. Joe and Elliot will present rural and agricultural economic development opportunities specific to Norfolk County.

Friday, June 1 | 12 - 1:15 p.m.
Land Use Considerations in Municipal Planning and Development
John Ariens, Associate Director, IBI Group and Pam Duesling, Director of Planning, Norfolk County
As rural communities like Norfolk County grow, change and advance, leaders must recognize the importance of good spaces and places. Planners work with various professionals and the general public to establish economic, social and environmental policies as well as communities for the common good. In developing the agricultural sector in Norfolk County, planners continuously balance opportunities for entrepreneurs while also protecting the county's prime agricultural lands for active food production. The opportunity is to create vibrant, well connected and environmentally sound places and spaces for the future.
