Design Regina Speaker Series

Here’s a link to a city-produced video of the first in three talks being presented in the next few days on urban planning issues tied to the development of an Official Community Plan. It was held at the University of Regina Education Auditorium on Sept. 22, and featured architect Ken Greenberg discussing urban sustainability. On my computer, the audio seems wonky for the first 12 minutes or so. If that’s the same for you, you can fast-forward to the point where the audio starts.

The remaining two talks are on Sept. 28 (Jennifer Keesmaat on advantages of mid-sized cities) and Oct. 4 (Larry Beasley on the importance of vibrant neighbourhoods). The talks and related Q&As run from 7-9 p.m. For more info visit www.designregina.ca.

  1. I am really curious about how the Design Regina thing is going. Is it completely dominated by chumps who just want free parking for their 3 SUVs? Is there more “we need a better bus system” than “just gimme more box stores, dammit”? REALLY curious.

  2. Dear Anonymous-1:51pm:

    If you’re “REALLY curious” about how the Design Regina “thing” is going, why not show up to see for yourself?
