Urban Planning is crucial to ensure that a city is sustainable, has a transportation system that works (very few traffic jams), is safe, has affordable housing and other considerations. Planning can make a big difference to a city. Vancouver’s planners have incorporated a seawall around much of the downtown core of the city and opposite banks. The result is a vibrant, walking, biking, running city full of healthy people.
