Conversations RE: Tacoma 2011 lecture #3 - Uncovering Tacoma's Authenticity
Uncovering Tacoma's Authenticity: What's the draw?
Hear the viewpoint of enlightened developers & engaged citizens discuss how we can create a vision for Tacoma's future, and sustain it. Learn what developers look for in a community and in individual properties; how good urban design helps create community (e.g. scale, massing, streetscape); and outcomes they seek. Where and what is the potential in Tacoma; what are our unique characteristics; and how can we differentiate ourselves in the marketplace? The moderator and speakers explore existing and needed mechanisms for public engagement and action.
