How do you build a 10-minute neighbourhood? Ask this week's livable cities conference

By Matthew Kupfer, CBC News Ottawa, May 14, 2018

Ottawa is playing host this week to a major international urban planning conference — and its goal is figuring out how to build neighbourhoods where everything's within a 10-minute walk.

The city made the bid to host the International Making Cities Livable Conference to coincide with the opening year of the forthcoming light-rail line.

It's the first time in the conference's 55 years that it's been held in Canada.
