Tuesday, September 12, 2017  11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the University of Alberta Faculty Club, 11435 Saskatchewan Drive, Edmonton.

Picture for a moment the graphics in any planning policy document. The awnings. The trees. The dog walkers and the bike lovers. While the pictures look nice and the policies feel good - have you ever wondered why it's so difficult to make it all actually happen? Presenters Antoine Palmer, Jarrett Campbell and Chelsey Jersak will tackle all that and more at this session. This event qualifies for 1.0 structured learning unit.
