- Hi All,
This may be of interest to the group. Anyone want to join in?
I have a Word document sent as an attachment to the original
message and would be happy to mail it along to anyone interested.
It apparently contains contest details.
>Dear Carfree Advocates-- ### --
>On behalf of the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC), I am writing to let you know about an upcoming community design contest that we are sponsoring. We believe it could be an important opportunity for public tansit.
>In September, SPEC will launch the Arbutus Corridor Community Design Contest to develop a vision for the Arbutus Corridor. This exciting contest will allow creative members of the public, students and planners to share their design ideas for the future of the Arbutus Corridor. SPEC will present the winning design(s) to the City of Vancouver.
>We want you to be involved with our contest! The following are some ideas of potential contributions:
>· Financial or in-kind contribution (for contest prizes)
>· Official endorsement
>· Displaying the contest poster/flyers
>· Including an article about the contest in your newsletter
>· Encouraging your members to enter the contest
>· Including the contest as part of a course curriculum
>· Providing space for a small display
>You will join community centres, schools, planning and architecture firms, business associations, local retailers, cycling and pedestrian groups, and other community organizations participating in this project.
>We would greatly appreciate any help you could give. Official sponsors and contributors will be recognized on our website, on posters and flyers, and at contest events. We expect extensive media coverage of this local community event. More contest information can be found on the enclosed fact sheet.
>We are excited about the Arbutus Corridor Design Contest and look forward to a successful community event. Please give us a call at (604) 736-7732, email us at enviro@..., or visit our website at www.spec.bc.ca. Contest details will appear on our website in early September.
