Ever thought about speaking at City Council but not sure where to start? Or have something to say but not sure which elected body to say it to? Join Downtown On the Go for a casual conversation about the basics on Feb. 2, 2016 at 4 p.m. We’ll share stories, hear tips & tricks, and then be joined by Councilmember Mello for the second half to hear from the other side of the process. There will be an opportunity to attend a City Council Meeting after the event at 5 p.m.
There are many upcoming opportunities, throughout the region, to share your ideas and opinions. Whether you’re interested in advocating for buses, bikes, or a more walkable city, you’ll learn something at this workshop. This will also be an opportunity to meet other civically engaged people in Tacoma and potentially collaborate and connect on issues that are important to you!
The workshop is free and open to the public. The conversation will take place at Tully’s Downtown, 764 Broadway, and is accessible by Pierce Transit routes 1, 3, 11, 13, 14, 16, 45 and 57 and the Free Tacoma Link. On-street bike parking is available. For details and to RSVP visit the Facebook event.
Downtown On the Go is the transportation advocate and resource for anyone whose daily life is downtown. Part of our mission is to advocate for transportation choices and land use policies that promote a vibrant and integrated downtown. This is the first event in a reoccurring series in collaboration with Forever Green Trails.
