An Intersection of Arts & Parking

What's the connection between the arts and downtown parking? One connection, at least, is that both will be topics for presentation as the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber hosts its quarterly City Center Luncheon next Friday between 11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. at the Tacoma Club.

Stephanie Stebich, director of the Tacoma Art Museum, and Amy McBride, Tacoma Arts Program Coordinator, will share the results of a study conducted by Americans for the Arts in cooperation with 156 communities and regions across the nation, showing that communities that support the arts and culture not only enhance their quality of life but also invest in their economic well-being.
Tacoma City Manager Eric Anderson will discuss his vision for a new streetcar network — created in conjunction with new strategically-placed commuter parking garages ringing downtown and eliminating parking requirements for new downtown buildings — as part of a far-reaching discussion of the city center's future.

Cost for the event is $25 for members pre-paid and $30 for non-members pre-paid. To reserve space, e-mail
