The second to last Walk Tacoma of 2016! Walk through the revitalizing Hilltop neighborhood on Wednesday, Sept. 7 with Downtown On the Go’s second to last Walk Tacoma event of 2016. City of Tacoma Councilmember Keith Blocker will lead the group along a 1.5-mile route, emphasizing the valuable new community resources and developments over the past few years.
The walk will begin at 5:15 p.m. at S. 11th & MLK Jr. Way and end at People’s Community Center. There will be a social in the Center with light refreshments to highlight the upcoming opening of the new pool. This walk is free, and there is no need to pre-register, just meet at the start location.
Councilmember Blocker will feature exciting community projects, new and existing, such as the Sound Transit Link expansion, which will begin construction in 2018, Catholic Community Services, the Tacoma Armory, and Valhalla Hall. Blocker is an involved councilmember and an engaging speaker who will have plenty of information to share on these projects.
The Walk Tacoma Series, sponsored by the Puyallup Watershed Initiative Active Transportation COI, is a seven-event walking series held on the first Wednesday of the month, from April through October. The Veteran & Business Service, who works with the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber to put veterans to work, is generously sponsoring the Hilltop Walk.
