Course Description

The focus of this course will be to examine the growing interest in integrated infrastructure planning and solutions. This interest is being driven by various factors including concerns about environmental sustainability, infrastructure cost containment, and agricultural land protection. In order to understand and properly assess this trend, a firm understanding of current practices in infrastructure planning and regulation is necessary. The course will cover the following topics: (1) Land use planning and regulation: what is the scope of land use planning in Ontario? (2) Water planning and regulation: how are our drinking water systems planned and by whom? (3) Urban transportation planning and regulation: how is the urban transportation system planned and by whom? (4) The new paradigm of integration: what do we mean by integration of infrastructure? What are we trying to achieve through integration; what has already been achieved in terms of integration in Ontario? (5) Is regulatory integration feasible? What are the respective roles of OEB, OMB, EAs? (6) Case studies.
