Reminder: It’s Gordon Price Day!

For those that can’t make one of today’s talks…

Just a friendly reminder that Liveable Places is presenting three different presentations by Gordon Price, former Vancouver City Councillor, tell the story of how Vancouver became a greener city. Price’s speech kicks off the "Envisioning Green LA" series for 2008 which will also include Manuel Pastor, Bill Reed – May 2008, and Jan Gehl.

Today’s talks include a lunchtime chat at city hall (which is already completely booked) and a 2:30 P.M. talk at the Long Beach Public Library.

But the highlight of the day will be a talk between Price and Cecilia Estolano, Chief Executive Officer of L.A.’s Community Redevelopment Agency at 5:30pm Immanuel Presbyterian Church.
