Dream Weaver: City Bringing In "The Man Who Built Vancouver" to Talk West Dallas
Mr. Beasley will assist key stakeholders in the vicinity to envision the possibilities as this area redevelops and have a neighborhood dialogue about opportunities for this community.Beasley will be dream-sessioning from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 29, at the St. Mary of Carmel Community Center at 2900 Vilbig Road. Oh, and the committee today will also hear about how the city plans to spend $2.8 million in FY2009-2010 budget money on new equipment to better tend to the unacceptable levees -- equipment that'll be used for maintenance, mowing and ... "tree removal adjacent to levee." Sonofa ... I think I buried the lead.
Mr. Beasley is the former planning director of Vancouver, Canada and current special adviser to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. He played a large role in an urban design and planning session held for City Council last year at the Central Library, and has vast experience with inner city revitalization and emphasizing quality urban design and neighborhood amenities to create livable communities.
