News: I GOT IN!
SFU AND CITY OF SURREY TRANSPORTATION LECTURE PROGRAM – WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, OCTOBER 6 – DECEMBER 1
SFU Surrey Campus (Surrey Central City Mall)
October 6, 2010 to December 1, 2010
Wednesdays, 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
The Transportation Lecture Program is the first of its kind in B.C., and Surrey is promoting this new initiative as part of the city’s broader engagement with the community and stakeholders. This lecture program will offer a forum to discuss important regional and local transportation issues, provide the City of Surrey a chance to better communicate and explain their role in transportation, the services they provide, and their place in the larger transportation “jig-saw”, and in turn, they will also hear first hand from you what issues and priorities are important.
In partnership with the SFU City Program we are offering a unique opportunity for citizens, professionals, and stakeholders to learn more about transportation in Surrey with topics including:
• Who’s responsible for different types of transportation and their relationship
• How transportation is funded, regionally and locally
• How we plan new transportation systems and networks
• How we operate and manage our roads
• What the relationship is between transportation and land use, in a growing city like Surrey.
The registration fee of $300. However, a sponsorship of up to $250 by the City will be available for 30 participants, given that minimum requirements for course completion are met (80% attendance and delivering paper/presentation).
