TWA General Meeting
October 11, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
Join us for our next TWA meeting with Melissa McGinnis, Metro Parks Tacoma’s Historic & Cultural Resource Administrator and author of the Arcadia book Tacoma’s Point Defiance Park. Melissa will share some history of the Tacoma waterfront and will discuss the connections between the Dome and Defiance.
In addition, Andrew Austin, Metro Parks government affairs manager, will give an update on “Envision Our Waterfront.” Metro Parks and the City of Tacoma are developing a community vision for Tacoma’s waterfront, focusing on Ruston Way from Point Defiance Park to Chinese Reconciliation Park. Read more about this project here.
This is a great opportunity to network and learn with others involved in Tacoma’s waterfront community. Guests are always welcome! Meetings are free for TWA members and guests.
