ExpandTOcore PiPS 2016

"PiPS" stands for Planners in Public Spaces, which is a public engagement initiative started by City Planning in 2013 in order to advance actionable items of its Strategic Plan, under the Strategic Director for Clear, Consistent and Compelling Communication.  

The basic purpose of Planners in Public Spaces is to bring planners to the people and provide opportunities for the public to engage with City Planners, one-on-one, on issues that affect the City and specific concerns they may have about development and policy in the city.

The TOcore team would like to thank everyone who made it out to the PiPS events. More events will be forthcoming as the study progresses.
