Guest Speaker: Rollin Stanley, City of Calgary’s General Manager for Urban Strategy
“Calgary in the 21st Century: The Impact of Digital Technology How has the digital revolution changed they way cities evolve and position themselves for the future?”
Rollin Stanley has worked in four major metro areas in North America, in urban, suburban and rural environments and distressed and booming urban areas. He is the City of Calgary’s General Manager for Urban Strategy. The Calgary Herald reported his joining The City as a “clear indication Calgary is achieving success in the goal to be a magnet for global talent.”
Previously he worked in the suburbs of Washington DC, transforming the face of a predominately suburban county by creating opportunities around subway stations for higher density. The transformation is one of the biggest in the United States and is helping to put the county on a firm financial footing. In St. Louis, he worked closely with the Mayor to help turnaround a city that had lost over 500,000 people in 50 years. Working in Toronto for 21 years, he was instrumental in negotiating development throughout the downtown and in transforming the entertainment district.
Monthly CALL Cafés are held at Rosedale Community Hall, 901 11 Ave, N.W., from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
