Special Summer Edition of Vancouver Urbanist Meetup—July 14, 3-6pm

picnicFor July’s Vancouver Urbanist Meetup we are going to switch things up a bit.

Instead of heading another pub, this month, Vancouver urbanist extraordinaire, Neil Salmond is inviting us over to his backyard for a urban picnic!  Topics of discussion may include favourite summer activities in the City and a recap of this week’s CIP-PIBC Annual Conference.

Keeping with the picnic theme, this month’s event is BYO Beverage, so please bring whatever you want to eat and drink, something to eat it off and a chair or mat to sit on. Given that it is also Bastille Day, feel free to were a beret, and bring a bottle of Bordeaux, a baguette or brioche to celebrate our French friends!

You can find Neil’s place at 235 West 12th Ave, but come up the lane-way between 11th & 12th and Columbia & Alberta, until you see the Dutch revival gambrel roof.

As always, we will be there from 3 pm until at least 6 pm. Significant others (and babies) welcome.

As this event is at a private residence, please try and RSVP for this event so Neil has an idea of how many people to expect.

    I said something this afternoon which might need to be revised.

    It is true that engineers at the Ministry of Transportation – and elsewhere – have a penchant for blowing the dust off old plans of never built projects and trying them out again on new politicians. Perhaps there is less chance of that now that 1) the baby-boomer generation of engineers are reaching retirement age 2) all projects now need to have digital plans not paper ones
