Description

How can we ensure that SmartTrack stations support complete, connected communities?

As plans for Mayor John Tory's SmartTrack move forward, Ryerson University Planning students and expert panelists Richard Joy and Sean Hertel look at the policy, planning, and design considerations necessary to build complete communities around proposed SmartTrack/RER stations.


Thursday, March 17th | 6:30 - 8:30pm
Urbanspace Gallery, 401 Richmond Street West
Free - RSVP


WHO

The students’ work was developed during a Ryerson City Building Institute undergraduate course on planning for complete communities, under the guidance of Chris De Sousa, Director and Professor at the Ryerson School of Urban and Regional Planning, and Guest Lecturer and Distinguished Visiting Scholar, Ken Greenberg. The students have presented their community designs to Mayor Tory and now they will share their work with broader community.


WHAT

Student presenters will be joined by experts Sean Hertel, urban planning consultant, and Richard Joy, executive director of the Urban Land Institute. Commenting on the student’s work, Richard and Sean will discuss why this work is important, why it's crucial that we get development around SmartTrack right, and what “getting it right” means.

The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A and reception. Light fare and refreshments will be provided.
