We start the day with panelists Ken Greenberg, Matt Blackett and Ren Thomas. Visioning. Lunch. And an afternoon of “tactical urbanism” – what can we do right now to make Queen Street a place for people?
The goal is to come out of the day with plans and teams to put a people-first vision into action on Queen Street, with projects that could role out for 100in1Day
