Next Steps

Dan Voelpel, business columnist for The News Tribune, today previews recommendations from the final report by Project for Public Spaces that will be released tomorrow. Dan's been very supportive of this project right from the beginning, and he gets the recommendations right.

One relatively minor correction, however, is in order: none of the consultants from PPS will be attending tomorrow's event. PPS has made its recommendations and passed them along to the BIA and its partners for implementation.

Attendees will see a recap of the May 11th workshop (thanks to TV Tacoma) and receive a copy of the final report. We will also present responses to the report, including reports from some local leaders who have already got to work on one or more of the ideas that emerged from the workshop.


  1. Can we expect to see a PDF or other electronic version showing up here or elsewhere on the web? If so, when?

    Can't wait to see it!

  3. I think everyone is looking forward to seeing it.

    Go to the meeting tomorrow at the Tacoma Club and you shall see all.

  5. I can't make the meeting, unfortunately.

    I presume there are no trade secrets in the report so hope an electronic version will be forthcoming for review by the people of this fine town.

    Thank you for the inspiring presentation. As a individual with a stake in a vital, diverse downtown I am very enthused by the ideas that came out of the PPS presentation.
