Mark the Place: Fred Kent comes to Surrey
Fred Kent in Surrey? Should be a good match.
Those who are interested in place-making will know Fred, the president of the New York-based Project for Public Spaces. That’s the group which rates Granville Island as the best district in North America (More here).
Fred is the featured speaker for the annual conference of the Business Improvement Associations (BIAs) of B.C., scheduled for May 10-13 at the Sheraton Guildford Hotel. (Details here.) Sign up for the early-bird special.
Thanks to the Whalley BIA, organizers for the conference, Fred will also be doing a public presentation on Wednesday, May 9th, from 7-9 pm in the auditorium at SFU Surrey (next to Surrey Central SkyTrain Station). His topic: How do you change a suburban crossroads into an urban core from a transportation perspective.
