Another month, another meetup with The Urbanist! Our meetups are open to all and free to attend, so come by if you want to meet us or get into the weeds of urban policy. We’ll be at the Belltown Pub on Tuesday, April 12th from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. You can find us in the loft space just beyond the bar area.
Once again, we’re bringing in an expert speaker to give you fresh perspectives on the urban environment. Our guest is Sonja Burseth, an Associate Planner with transportation consultancy Nelson/Nygaard. Sonja’s graduate research at the University of Washington looked into a shared parking model for empty spaces at multifamily developments on transit corridors. Sonja also works on a variety of other transit and non-motorized projects that seek to efficiently use limited urban space and provide mobility benefits equitably and economically. Around 6.30pm Sonja will lead a casual 15-minute discussion and then be available to mingle one-on-one.
We look forward to our fourth meeting of 2016 and hope to see you there!
