Upcoming Think & Drink to Discuss Urban Planning in Yakima
YAKIMA – Join Humanities Washington for our next Think & Drink conversation, Shaping the Neighborhood: The Downtown Plan for Yakima and the History of Urban Planning, at Gilbert Cellars Nov. 14. This is our last Think & Drink of 2013 in Yakima (but look for one more event in Seattle and Tacoma in December)!
The free event will tackle the history of city planning, asking: How does urban planning work? What goes into shaping a city? How can citizens affect the designs of their communities? And particularly, how does this relate to Yakima as it embarks on the master plan for downtown?
