In November 2008 Raymond Fung, Chair of the Green Infrastructure Partnership (GIP), announced that Vincent Lalonde and John Sidnell will represent the Master Municipal Construction Documents Association (MMCD) on the GIP Steering Committee.
“Looking ahead, our vision is that the Green Infrastructure Partnership will build on the foundation provided by past successes; and can then play an integrating role to cut across disciplines and ultimately help communities create neighbourhoods that integrate both good planning and innovative engineering designs, for overall greater sustainability," stated Ray Fung.
"The Green Infrastructure Partnership has achieved a great deal over the past four years, and can take credit for spurring innovation in the BC engineering community. Now, there are parallel programs such as Local Motion and the Gas Tax Agreement that recast the opportunity to make the every day investments that will lead us to the right place," stated Dale Wall.
Building on the interest and momentum generated by successful series on both sides of the Georgia Basin in 2007, 'CAVI - Convening for Action on Vancouver Island' is collaborating with the Capital Regional District and the Green Infrastructure Partnership to organize 'Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation in the Capital Region: The 2008 Series'.
