Coffee Talk: “Creating the Conditions to Support Neighborhood Businesses”
Thursday, February 23rd, from 7-8:30PM at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church (8008 35th Ave NE)
As part of the ongoing neighborhood planning process for 35th Ave NE, we are hosting a series of Coffee Talks on various planning concepts.  These Coffee Talks are hosted thanks to the help of theCommunity Planning Assistance Team (CPAT) of the Washington Chapter of the American Planning Association.
We are hosting our first Coffee Talk this Thursday, February 23rd, from 7-8:30PM at the Wedgwood Presbyterian Church on “Creating the Conditions to Support Neighborhood Businesses.”  We will hear from Theresa Barerras from the Office of Economic Development on the “Only In Seattle” Initiative, Beth Dufek from Impact Capital on what other neighborhoods and business districts are doing to support their business districts, and Wendy Schwartz from Fresh Boutique (pictured above) which had to close their doors in 2011.
We are thankful to our local Top Pot for providing coffee and some other deliciousness for the meeting.  All are welcome.
