A Celebration of Planning in Grey County and Canada

Thursday, March 7, 2019
7:00 p.m.
Grey County Administration Building
595 9th Avenue East, Owen Sound


2019 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Canadian Institute of Planners and 25 years of the Registered Professional Planner designation in Ontario. To celebrate these historic milestones, please join Grey County and Lakeland District Planners for a free interactive event on planning in Grey County and Canada. The evening will include discussions on:

  • what urban and rural planners do
  • why and how we plan
  • the history and future of planning
  • how planning shapes your community

Participantes will also get to try their hands at planning. Using LEGO® we want you to design a community using your new found planning knowledge (and creativity of course).

Light refreshments will be provided. No pre-registration is necessary. 

For more information contact Randy Scherzer at randy.scherzer@grey.ca or at 519-372-0219 ext.1237.
