The North Waterloo Branch of the Architectural Conservancy Ontario (ACO) will once again host a series of three educational lectures open to the public. The City Building Lecture Series will examine the role played by planning, urban design and landscape architecture in the 3-dimensional development of our communities while still encouraging the preservation of our built heritage.
The first lecture coincides with World Town Planning Day, an international event celebrating the accomplishments of planners and their contributions to communities.
