How's this for a happy coincidence? Vancouver's celebrated chief planner, Larry Beasley, will speak tonight at the University of Pennsylvania, 6 p.m. in Meyerson Hall's basement auditorium. Beasley is the planning mastermind who helped make Vancouver one of the most liveable cities in North America. Wouldn't it be nice if some folks from the Philadelphia City Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Adjustment stopped by to pick up a few pointers? I'll be there and I'll let you know what Beasley has to say.
