The Urbanist Monthly Meetup with Futurewise
January 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm PST
In January we will be joined by our friends from Futurewise. RSVP on our Facebook page.
For more than 25 years, Futurewise has worked to prevent sprawl in order to protect our State’s resources and make our urban areas livable for and available to all. Founded to help support implementation of the first-in-the-nation Growth Management Act, they focus on preventing the conversion of wildlife habitat, open space, farmland, and working forests to subdivisions and development, while directing most growth into our urbanized areas. Their mission also incorporates an important focus on livability, housing, transportation, social justice, environmental justice and environmental quality in our urbanized areas. They will discuss Futurewise’s vision, their 2020 policy agenda, and take your questions.
This monthly social event is free, all ages, and open to everyone. Come by if you want to meet other people who care about our city, network, or hear from an inspirational speaker at a local establishment. You can find us in the lower room, and our guest speaker starts at 6:30pm.
We will be at the Panama Hotel Coffee and Tea House in the Chinatown/International District again. They have coffee, tea, beer and wine, and food available. They are also a cool independent cafe in a wonderful historic building in one of Seattle’s great urban neighborhoods. We hope you can join us!
