So how does this reflect on how we design communities?  Join us tomorrow, May 18 at the Glenbow, where we’ll be talking suburbs: what they’re doing right, what challenges and opportunities they present, and what they’ll look like in the future.  We look to McKenzie Towne – a neighbourhood envisioned as a suburb of the future – as a Calgary case study.

Have additional feedback on McKenzie Towne or the future of the suburbs?  Feel free to email your comments to celia@sustainablecalgary.org, and/or join us May 18:


Let’s Talk About Neighbourhoods: Doors open 6:00PM. Panel 6:30-8:30PM.
