Seattle Transit Communities: Charting Our Path Forward

WHERE: Bertha Knight Landes Room, City Hall

Join us this Thursday for a very exciting lunchtime brownbag about the
Planning Commission's Seattle
2FSTCFinalLayout.pdf> Transit Communities report. Hear Commissioners Josh
Brower, Kevin McDonald and David Cutler present the Commissions
recommendations, including: 

*	Where timely investment will provide the most benefit to Seattle
transit communities 

*	Appropriate land use and necessary investments to create successful
transit communities while preserving unique neighborhood identities 

*	Funding strategies for implementing "essential components for
livability" - parks, open space, libraries, sidewalks, plazas, pedestrian
improvements, lighting - needed to complete these vibrant, great

After the commissioners present their findings, two expert respondants--Ed
Hewson from Paragon Real Estate and Barbara Gray from SDOT--will offer their
insights and explore some of the commission's recommendations more fully,
framing a healthy Q+A session.
