Mojan Nozari – Area D
I am excited to be part of the Community Advisory Council as one of the members from Area D – my neighbourhood. I have lived in the UEL since 2001, and moved to Acadia Road with my husband and my son in 2005.
I have accumulated several years of experience in the architecture and development of mixed commercial/ residential high-rise complexes, community centres, libraries, etc., both in Canada and abroad. Currently, I am working with the IBI group on a major project next to BC Place.
I feel so fortunate to be living in the UEL, next to Pacific Spirit Park. Walking and jogging through its trails with my dog, makes me realise how fortunate we are to be surrounded by its beauty, and how important it is for us to take care of it and preserve it for generations to come.
I am looking forward to representing our community on the CAC.
Marg Stuart – Area B
Born in Vancouver I have known the University area as a young child, again as a student and then I purchased a home in the UEL with my family in 2000. I co-founded an international management consulting firm in 1989 where I apply my background in design, planning and strategy.
I am stepping back into an active role on the CAC because there are some things happening in the UEL that I am concerned about: the impact of Block F density on the UEL, the community centre issues, the question of where the pressure to densify the UEL is coming from. There seems to be a master plan, but the Community is not privy to it – Why? Protecting the official Community Plan and the existing land use, building and community administration By-Laws from outside interests, the UEL Governance Study.
I look forward to working with my fellow CAC members, representing Area B and the broader community of UEL residents.
