    Legal implications of climate change: Opportunities and risks for the professional planner
    (Canadian Institute of Planners, 2008-09) Kyriazis, Joanna; Callihoo, Christine
    The frequency of extreme weather events is putting more people and infrastructure in harm’s way. In both proactive and reactive ways, the law is evolving to better direct the incorporation of climate change into infrastructure decision-making and to hold certain parties to account for failing to better prepare for the risks. Legislation, policies, and plans that direct the consideration of climate change are emerging. Professional planners should consider how these developments impact their work and take steps to ensure that planning and management of resources and infrastructure are carried out in a way that minimizes and prepares for climate change impacts.

    The power of engagement: Planning during an annexation
    (Canadian Institute of Planners, 2018-09) Yu, Stephen; Eidick, Ryan
    Preparing a new Area Structure Plan is a no easy feat, especially when the plan area becomes part of an annexation request that leaves much uncertainty for all parties involved. Elan is a case study of an ASP stuck between the annexation requests of the Town of Beaumont, and the City of Edmonton, and entering unchartered waters of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board’s (formerly the Capital Region Board) new Growth Plan. While annexations are exciting times for growing municipalities, they can provide challenges on the planning process. However, through the use of engagement, these challenges can be resolved and the Elan ASP offers insight on how to do just that.
