Gordon Lovegrove
Kelowna Councillor

Your city can honestly benefit from Gord's years of professional work
experience, which is too long to list in one page. As a UBCO Associate
Professor in sustainable communities, he leads the Sustainable Transport
Safety Research Laboratory. He chairs the national Sustainable Development
Committee for Canada’s Society of Civil Engineers, and by the way, he was
one of the founding Professors and taught the first class in UBCO’s new
School of Engineering in Kelowna.

As one who insists on accomplishing tasks, he led the launch of the UBC
Student’s U-Pass, which impacted 45,000 Vancouver and 10,000 Kelowna
students. Transit use went up by 40%, there was an almost unbelievable 7%
drop in traffic on the Lions Gate bridge and over 10,000 tonnes of reduced
Green House Gasses reduced in the first year in Vancouver.

Always an active supporter of improved connectivity and smarter growth,
and having work for City Halls in the past, Gord knows the obstacles the
staff face and feels a responsibility to become even more involved with
our city's future.

You and your neighbours have identified three top issues during the
citizens spring survey: Affordability, Traffic Congestion, and Safety.

Those are his areas of expertise. He researches these topics vigorously,
teaches them to the next generation of engineers and writes books to help
guide current city planners and engineers.

What He’s offering the city is very simple: his experience.
