2007 Metro Vancouver Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation Series organized under the umbrella of the Water Sustainability Action Plan
Recognition from Metro Vancouver Board
Mayor Lois Jackson, Chair of the Metro Vancouver Board, stated that “…when you have examples of what can be done, and projects are being built, you can then wrap your mind around the green infrastructure vision and say to yourself: “what’s the big deal….this is really common sense….if we can do this, then we can do more.” To read the complete text of her remarks, click on Mayor Lois Jackson of Delta opens ‘2007 Showcasing Innovation Series’.
Later when Mayor Jackson reported out to the Metro Vancouver Board, she had glowing accolades for the Showcasing Innovation Series.
The Metro Vancouver Series
- Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation Series in Metro Vancouver launched in Delta:
The Corporation of Delta showcased how progress towards sustainability on-the-ground is being made incrementally through small steps. Changes in standard municipal practices that are being implemented today will ripple through time and result in cumulative benefits.
- Township of Langley Showcases Green Infrastructure Innovation in New Neighbourhoods:
The Township of Langley showcased what can be accomplished with large-scale projects when Council, the community and staff are in alignment and embrace a ‘green culture’. Three new neighbourhood communities illustrate how a ‘water-centric’ approach is changing the way that land is being developed.
- UniverCity Leads Way with Next Generation of Green Infrastructure Innovation: UniverCity on Burnaby Mountain showcased the fruits of its partnership with the City of Burnaby – first, in developing a shared vision of what a ‘sustainable community’ on top of a mountain would look like; and then, in taking that vision from concept to reality.
