Join TCC at "Conversations RE: Tacoma" October 21st

TCC will be presenting at this event. Come and join us in the discussion on sustainable transportation.

Sustainable Transportation: The Future Is in the Past
October 21st at 6:30pm
Washington State History Museum

The creation of new, attractive urban spaces relies on good, non-automotive mobility options. Ironically, American cities used to rely on an infrastructure of inter-city and inter-urban rail, street cars, biking and walking. The guide to what will work best in the future has already proved utile and well-designed in the past. In this forum three experts in sustainable transportation will analyze historic conceptualizations of mobility with a view towards how that vision from the past can become a prescription for a more livable urbanity.
