How can we build more sustainable, vibrant and inclusive communities and physical environments? Our popular evening workshop, Planning for Non-Planners, delves into urban planning theory and approaches that have shaped our region, and provides an overview of how land-use tools (like plans, policies, bylaws, permits, etc.) are applied to planning decisions.
This course is perfect for anyone looking to gain a solid understanding of the field, particularly professionals in real estate, social planning or non-profits.
