Planning and Design for a Great City: A Dialogue with Mayor McGinn


Location: Architecture Hall, Room 147

Monday, February 8, 2010 @ 6:30 PM

Join us for an evening lecture with Seattle Mayor Michael McGinn as he discusses his vision for the city with regard to issues concerning the built environment, open space, transportation and sustainability.

Mike McGinn got his start in politics as an advocate for safe sidewalks in his Greenwood neighborhood. His commitment to healthy communities grew as he founded Great City and led campaigns for transit, parks, and other green infrastructure. Mike’s grassroots mayoral campaign was successful in large part because he brought diverse people together around a vision for an equitable, green, and urban Seattle. He considers excellent planning and design to be critical to creating this future and will be visiting the College of Built Environments to exchange ideas about how we get there.
