Friday Forum: Book Club: A Vision for Tacoma

Tacoma, Wash. – Help create a Vision for Tacoma by reflecting on Tacoma’s past and following its storyline, re-told by historian Michael Sullivan at the Downtown On the Go Friday Forum on Friday, December 11 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. at the University of Washington Tacoma (Tacoma Room GWP 320).

Read Sullivan’s “Vision” articles available on the Downtown On the Go website before attending the forum, and join the discussion with Michael Sullivan. The discussion will be led by Dr. Mark Pendras, Associate Professor in Urban Studies at UWT. Together we will reflect on Tacoma’s past as we discuss a vision for Tacoma and its transportation system.

Transportation has been a key element in Tacoma’s development and landscape. The railroad, port, and streetcars helped layout the foundation of our city. Transportation should remain a key element in the city’s development, but it may look different as we move into the future.

The event is free and open to the public. The forum at UWT is accessible by Pierce Transit routes 1, 41, 53, 400, 500, and 501 and Tacoma Link. On-street bike parking is available. For details and to RSVP visit the Facebook event.

Downtown On the Go’s Friday Forums are a chance to learn about transportation issues and opportunities in Tacoma, discuss real challenges facing downtown commuters and residents, and hear about new ideas in the transportation world.

Thanks to BLRB Architects for sponsoring the quarterly Friday Forum series.
