Chris Ollenberger is the president of the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), which is the City of Calgary’s development arm. As such, the CMLC will be the main actor involved in the redevelopment of Calgary’s ‘East Village’.
Prior to joining the CMLC, he was president of Three Sisters Mountain Village, leading the development of one of Western Canada’s premier resort communities in the challenging regulatory environment of the Rockies, with its interlinked municipal, provincial, and federal government interests.
Chris will be speaking on his experiences and challenges in community development and this will provide an excellent opportunity for students to gain insight of how development occurs in Calgary. This is also a great opportunity to engage an important figure that will be re-shaping Calgary’s urban identity.
Chris will be speaking this Friday, February 12th in the Bianca Room in Mac Hall. The talk goes from 1:00 – 2:00 pm. If you need it, this map can help you find the Bianca Room
