This Thursday, Jan. 26, Futurewise, my office and the Office of Sustainability and Environment have teamed up to put together a brown bag discussion on the Climate Action Plan.
The focus of the brown bag will be on transit oriented communities. Building homes closer to jobs while also improving street and transit infrastructure can save families in Seattle money and help us meet our environmental goals around green house gas reduction. A panel of local experts will discuss tangible opportunities for healthy, safe and affordable communities.
We have a great panel of speakers, and the conversation will be co-moderated by Councilmembers Rasmussen (Chair of the Transportation Committee) and Conlin (Chair of the Land Use and Sustainability Committee).
We have a stellar panel as well:
- Estela Ortega of El Centro de la Raza
- Rebecca Saldana of Puget Sound Sage
- Dave Cutler of GGLO Architects & the Seattle Planning Commission
- Doris Koo of Enterprise Community Partners.
Location: GGLO Conference Room (1301 First Avenue, Suite 301). GGLO is located in downtown Seattle at the Harbor Steps, just two blocks south of the Pike Place Market and directly across the street from the Seattle Art Museum.
