Guelph Urban Design Summit


The City of Guelph is growing and the way Guelph is growing is changing. Mixed-use and higher-density development is occurring, and good urban design is critical to ensure this growth is being proactively and thoughtfully planned. This is the essence of successful City-building and the vision of cities across Ontario. But how do we move beyond the vision to delivering change on the ground?

Evening Public Forum - May 5

Are you interested in how our City is being designed? David Miller, President of World Wildlife Fund Canada and 63rd Mayor of Toronto, and Andrew Howard, co-founder of Build a Better Block, will discuss how good urban design creates more livable and enduring places. The discussion will be moderated by Ric Young, one of Canada’s leading practitioners and thinkers in the field of social change.
