Urban Grace Church hosts town hall meeting on urbanism tonight

Join Rev. Eric Jacobsen, Mayor Marilyn Strickland and other local urbanists for a presentation and panel discussion on urbanism and development in Tacoma.

Time: February 25, 2010 from 7pm to 8:30pm
Location: Urban Grace Church (S. 11th and Market St.) in the Parlor
Organized By: Theater District Town Hall

Rev. Eric Jacobsen, senior pastor at First Presbyterian Church has devoted a considerable part of his career to taking a hard look at "poor decisions that are being made in this country regarding our human habitation" or what he calls the "false gods" and "broken promises" of sprawl and standardization. Following on his presentation during last fall's Urban Design Lecture Series, Conversations re: Tacoma, we have the opportunity to hear Jacobsen share his thoughts at the upcoming Theater District Town Hall meeting at Urban Grace.

The meeting will feature a keynote by Jacobsen, followed by a panel discussion with Jacobsen, developer and downtown resident Blaine Johnson, Mayor Strickland, Executive Director of the Tacoma Housing Authority Michael Mirra, Urban Grace Pastor Tad Monroe, and a representative from the Broadway Center. The panel will conclude with an open discussion with the audience.

This event is free and open to the public.
