Members of APPI and the planning profession have been invited to attend a round table discussion on repurposing schools in Calgary and Edmonton, to create community hubs in mature neighbourhoods.  The purpose of this session is to explore and define the benefits as well as the many issues, challenges and barriers to this end goal, in very broad terms.

The session is on Tuesday, February 26, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM and will be held at the Federal Building in Edmonton.  This is a brainstorming session only and the invitation to APPI at this preliminary stage is evidence that APPI is making headway in its efforts to generate acknowledgement that RPP’s are key to achieving proper planning outcomes and ensuring that planning is done in the best interests of the public.  

The deadline to RSVP is February 18, as APPI needs to provide a complete list of attendees for security at the Federal Building. (Government-issued photo ID must also be presented at reception for access to the facility.) Please submit your availablity to [email protected] and the final details will be sent to the confiirmed participants.

Urban honeybee farming is becoming increasingly popular in and around major urban municipalities in Canada. Until recently, the push to plan for bees in urban environments has been less apparent but with honeybees being introduced into residential contexts, guidelines and regulations are becoming a necessity.

Thomas Schweizer, President of the Calgary and District Beekeepers Association (CDBA), has been involved on a voluntary basis to assist the City of Calgary with honeybee-related inquiries. Click here for complete details.

Papaschase Room, 2nd Floor, Faculty Club, University of Alberta, 11435 Saskatchewan Drive, Edmonton

Many people live in and visit Edmonton and lament the apparent lack of historic buildings in our city. While many buildings have been lost over the years, dig a bit deeper and you'll find that Edmonton has an active preservation program, and more historic resources than you might think.

David Johnston, RPP, MCIP, Principal Heritage Planner with the City of Edmonton, will provide a backgrounder on Edmonton's program. Topics will include the legislative framework for heritage in Alberta, approaches that are taken to help owners make the decision to preserve places that matter, as well as the challenges faced by preservation advocates with land use planning initiatives in a growing metropolitan area.
