This presentation is open to all who are part of the First Met community. Please note the change of date to Oct. 19. Information on obtaining the Zoom link will be forthcoming.

The First Met Men's Group will present 'An Urban Design Primer: Exploring Basic Concepts of Urban Design for Victoria’s Downtown, and Pressures Our Core Now Faces.”  The Zoom presentation will be led by Chris Gower, Architect and Urban Design planner, and Martin Segger, Adjunct Professor at UVic. 

Chris is the former chief planner for the city of Victoria. He led the strategy to bring design regulations that would encourage the preservation of our historic old town core but would be flexible enough to allow for variations as needed.

Martin has been the Director of Art Galleries and Collections at UVic, as well as being part of the Department of History in Art, Faculty of Fine Arts, and co-chair of the former Provincial Capital Commission.
