While our collective understanding of complete streets concepts continues to increase in depth and scope, successful implementation often remains a challenge.

January's joint Planning Institute of British Columbia (PIBC) South Coast Chapter and BC Cycling Coalition event will bring together planners, active transportation professionals, and grassroots community advocates at a Complete Streets Forum. The forum will be a solutions–oriented dialogue, to build on the professional planning community’s capacity and expertise in fostering complete streets.

The Complete Streets Forum features short inspirational presentations from expert panelists to kick start an evening of dialogue on realizing complete streets in our neighbourhoods.

Panelists:

  • Iona Bonamis (Transportation Planner), City of North Vancouver
  • Dale Bracewell (Manager, Active Transportation), City of Vancouver
