Changing face of Richmond subject of forum
Richmond Art Gallery will host "Developing Richmond" on Saturday, March 3—a forum on the changing face of Lulu Island.
Timed with the current gallery exhibition Fantasy Gardens, the forum will feature a panel discussion with four people: Terry Crowe, manager of policy planning for the City of Richmond; Kent Mullinix, director of Kwantlen's Institute for Sustainable Horticulture; Harold Steves, city councillor; and De Whalen, a farmland advocate and former council candidate.
The discussion will focus on how Richmond has changed, what is the Agricultural Land Reserve, the impact of land use changes and the former site of Fantasy Gardens.
The event takes place Saturday, March 3 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the gallery, 7700 Minoru Gate. Admission is free.
Fantasy Gardens by Stuart McCall and Neil Wedman is an exhibition of drawings and photographs from Fantasy Garden World, an attraction built at No. 5 Road and Steveston Highway by former Social Credit premier Bill Vander Zalm in the mid-1980s.
