What does it take to plan and design a 'dream city'?
Four leading urban design and creative industry professionals next week will address what attracts people to places and makes them stay and return to urban centres at the first of Toowoomba Regional Council's free 2014 Winter Urban Design Seminar series at the Empire Church Theatre, 56 Neil Street.
Members of the public, as well as planning, design and building industry members are invited to the first seminar on Thursday, May 1. The event opens at 5pm for a 5.30pm start and runs to 7pm.
