I personally beleive that all Real Estate Professionals should be students of Urban Planning. So much of what affects our clients property value, at a macro level, is directly tied to the management and policy of the built environment around us. I was fortunate to attend a City Age conference in Uptwn Waterloo last year and the following presentation was shared with us by Simon O'Brien from Stantec Consulting. Many of the principles discussed in this session are directly applicable to life here in Hespeler Village. Adopting some or all of these policies will add momentum to the already rapidly improving fortunes of our little Village on the River!
