As 2016 is drawing to a close, we can all look back and reflect on what made headlines over the past year. Based on my own online networks, these stories had the most traction this past year on social media: 


The original Blackfoot name for the area is actually Aiss ka pooma, a name the commission recommended be adopted for the new community being built on the land that was once sacred ceremonial ground. Instead, the English translation of the name, Medicine Hill, was adopted for the community during a tense council vote. [CBC]

You know where to find Wonderland, the Famous Five and Chinook Arc — but here are nine finds for even the most seasoned public arts aficionados, and a future project that you can be a part of. [CBC]

[YIMBY] groups are sounding the alarms that their cities are becoming increasingly exclusive and that the soul of their community—the grit, the weirdness, the vibrancy, the characters, the youthful innovation and creativity, the elders—is at jeopardy if local governments don't increase housing supplies and affordable housing options. [Fast Co Exist]

And from my family to yours, Happy New Year and all the best in 2017!
