TACOMA – On Friday, April 5, 2013, from noon to 1 p.m., Downtown On the Go and Transportation Choices Coalition are holding a forum to discuss transit-oriented development. This event, held at UW Tacoma, is free and open to the public.
Transit-oriented development is supposed to spur economic and community development and there are great examples of its success throughout the world. But what works for Tacoma? As Sound Transit works to expand our Link light rail system and Pierce Transit develops our local bus system in the most efficient way possible, Tacoma has the opportunity to create development opportunities with transit. How will we make it work?
Join the discussion with our panelists:
· Ben Bakkenta, Puget Sound Regional Council/Growing Transit Communities
· Chelsea Levy, Sound Transit
· David Boe, Tacoma City Council/Boe Architects
The panel will be moderated by Kathleen Cooper of the Tacoma News Tribune. The forum is free to the public. RSVP on Facebook.
