From tree coverage & housing density to walkability & transit access, city design can make sustainable choices the easier option – or make them downright impossible. Join us as we explore how our land use policies and design choices inform the fight against climate change. This free virtual Friday Forum panel event will be held on March 25th from noon – 1:30 p.m. and will feature panelists Kristin Lynett (City of Tacoma Office of Sustainability), Steve Atkinson (City of Tacoma Planning Department), Mariana Sanchez Castillo (Washington Environmental Council), and Marquis Mason (Communities for a Healthy Bay).
Register in advance for this webinar. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. A recording of the panel will be available on DOTG’s Facebook and YouTube accounts. Downtown On the Go’s annual Friday Forum series is a space to discuss transportation issues and opportunities in Tacoma, to recognize real challenges facing downtown commuters and residents, and to learn about new ideas in the transportation world. The 2022 forums are framed around the question what does it mean to be Home in Tacoma? and explore the intersection of housing and transportation as Tacoma looks towards significant housing policy updates.
