Brampton is a young, diverse and dynamic city on the cusp of a remarkable shift to a more sustainable future as it experiences unprecedented growth. Join us on a series of walk shops as we visit the pivotal moment in the transformation on the City of Brampton, as the City shift from 2040 Vision into implementation. We will explore how integrated transit-oriented developments, tech and health sectors, arts and culture, public realm and destinations impact the lives of citizens and provide a robust platform that enable urban living to face the challenges of the future. The intent of the walk shop series is to give participants a first-hand experience of the transformation in situ in four key locations. Lunch will be provided at the front end of the walk shop series.
