Ride the Bus with Tacoma Housing Authority and Hilltop Action Coalition | Thurs. March 11, 3 – 4 p.m.

Join the virtual Ride the Bus event to discuss housing and transit developments in Hilltop, and how they are affecting local residents. Downtown On the Go is looking forward to chatting with Brendan A. Nelson, a Certified Nonprofit Professional and current President of the Hilltop Action Coalition, as well as Alyssa Torrez, a Real Estate Development Project Specialist for Tacoma Housing Authority. DOTG’s own Advocacy & CTR Coordinator, Laura Svancarek will be moderating the conversation. Learn how transit and housing planning and infrastructure can lead to gentrification, and how current Hilltop residents could potentially be impacted by the current developments.

The recording will be posted on the DOTG Facebook page after the event.

This free event, sponsored by the Puyallup Watershed Initiative Active Transportation Community of Interest.

Each year we invite elected officials and community leaders to ride the bus. These events give community members the chance to ask questions and hear from decision-makers while riding on our regional transportation system.

Are you an elected official or community leader who wants to be highlighted in our Ride the Bus event series? Email info@downtownonthego.org
