APPI Webinar - The Journey Continues
In this session, Truper will reflect upon the instructive learnings and challenges in his elected years in local government which led him to a career as a professional planner and senior administrator. Issues discussed will include regional planning, planning in the public and private sectors, transit, urban design, densities, environmental stewardship and translating that work to action. Comparisons will be drawn between planning and local government administration in Ontario and Alberta.
Truper makes communities better places by design. He challenges the status quo by understanding the temporal impact of planning decisions, thinking ten steps ahead and looking at the big picture.
Truper has worked across the planning spectrum, started his career in municipal government at the political level with four terms on Council (Cochrane Alberta) Council, two of them as Mayor, and Chair of the Calgary Regional Partnership where he preceded over the development of the Calgary Metropolitan Plan. After leaving politics, Truper completed his Masters of Planning at the University of Calgary and then went on to lead Stantec Consulting’s Calgary planning practice where he led private land development projects and worked with municipalities and the AUMA on inter-municipal policy development. With a move back to Ontario in 2018 to be closer to his family, Truper started work at the administrative level with the Town of Lakeshore, Ontario as Director of Community and Development Services, appointed Chief Administrative Officer in 2019.
Truper’s leadership has helped to create progressive change in municipal government. His work, regionally and locally in Alberta and Ontario, has given him unique insights on planning issues facing local government and regional planning. He focuses on trust as the underlying building block for change.
