Introduction to ‘Eco-Districts’
Published On: 22 September 2015
After attending an Eco-Districts workshop with our long time project collaborator from Vancouver, David Ramslie the facilitator, we thought of the relevance and impactions that the Eco-Districts concept could offer to the future development of the Mississauga City Centre with incoming LRT and the Downtown 21 Plan for strategic growth.
As such, we organized an Introduction to Eco-Districts for City of Mississauga Staff, bringing forward our role in the visioning, design and implementation of new communities and neighbourhood improvement strategies. With David as an ambassador for the Canada Green Building Council, we provided and overview of the concepts and examined the success of collaborative projects between private and public sectors undertaken within the Eco-Districts framework.
