I think the opportunity is to apply a regional lens to a project area with several communities and find a collaboration approach

On today’s podcast we talk with Lisa Prime from PRIME Strategy & Planning as she works with the Winnipeg METRO Region to develop a Regional Growth Management and Servicing Plan. From her work on Toronto Waterfront and the Don River restoration project Lisa discusses similarities that she might draw on from her experience when looking to sustainably plan a growing METRO Region such as the one in Manitoba.

Lisa also shares the importance of working with partners in business and industry and the opportunity to bring folks together on a shared benefit and find ways to improve processes but also improve performance with a made-at-home approach.

Colleen Sklar - Listen in bimonthly, as I talk to leaders across all sectors of civic and political life about developing a culture of collaboration to increase competitiveness, building solid foundations for economic success, and how to behave like a global actor by focusing on regional economic development.
