Lina is an Associate, Registered Professional Planner (RPP) and Associate Member of the OALA, with a focus on the public realm and experience working for both private and public sector clients. Her work varies in scale, including municipality-wide projects, such as the Prince Edward County Streetscape and Façade Design Guidelines and the Town of Newmarket Neighbourhood Character Official Plan Amendment; master planning projects, such as the Shoppers World Brampton Redevelopment and the Zentil Lands, part of the Laird in Focus Study Area; and individual sites for highest and best use analysis and in support of development applications. Her academic background in landscape architecture and urban planning provides her with a landscape-first approach to solving land use planning and design problems in urban settings.
Lina’s big-picture thinking and ability to communicate and synthesize multi-layered concepts in a simplified and effective manner have resulted in the successful completion of various projects, including the Robinson Glen (Future Urban Area) Community Design Plan in Markham, the Town of Caledon Comprehensive Town-Wide Design Guidelines, and various mixed use, residential and commercial development applications throughout the Greater Toronto Area and in Western Ontario. Lina facilitates public and stakeholder consultation events, with experience in administering online surveys, and leading community walking tours and design workshops.
