Many Jane’s Walks are planned for cities around the world during the first weekend in May, in celebration of the legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs. For more information please check out the Jane’s Walk website.
The Preserved Stories website also has information, in particular about the events mentioned below.
Four events that I’m pleased to highlight are the following Jane’s Walks and an important Open House, presented by Etobicoke-Lakeshore MPP Peter Milczyn, concerned with changes to the Ontario Municipal Board:
1) MPP Peter Milczyn invites you to his Open House on Planning Reform, Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 6:30 pm
This is an event that will be of interest to any person who is familiar with the Committee of Adjustment and the Ontario Municipal Board.
