Join CityClub for “The Making of a Neighborhood”: A non-political Election Day forum!
We all want to live in a great neighborhood. A large part of who we are is defined by where we live. And it is also a fundamental element of our overall well-being. Whether or not we are fortunate enough to choose our neighborhood, it can have a profound impact on our economic opportunities, our children’s education and even our basic health.
Join CityClub on Tuesday for an Election Day breakfast forum – not to discuss politics – but to discuss what it takes to make a great neighborhood and find out how residents can help shape their neighborhoods, so they can have a say in the ongoing dialogue about how Seattle neighborhoods are changing. The UW Department of Communication is a co-promoter of the event.
The forum features the following panelists: Suzie Burke, President, Fremont Dock Co.; Rahwa Habte, Organizer, OneAmerica; Mike Mathieu, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder, Walk Score; Darryl Smith, Deputy Mayor for Community, City of Seattle Office of the Mayor; and Pete Spalding, West Seattle community leader, and will be moderated by Knute Berger, Contributing Editor, Crosscut.com.
The forum will also explore what elements are necessary to create a truly great, urban neighborhood—from schools and housing, to transit, walkability and economic vitality, to socioeconomic diversity and crime prevention.
