Coffee Talk Lecture #4 - Demographic Trends and Diversity

When: Tuesday, June 28th / 6:30 -8:30pm
Where: Lake City Community Center / 12531 28th Ave NE

The last APA-LCNA sponsored Lake City Coffee Talk is focusing on demographic trends and diversity in the Lake City community. Come learn more about how Lake City is evolving, who makes up our community, and getting ideas on making Lake City welcoming to all of its residents.

This Roundtable will begin with a description of Lake City age, race, ethnicity, income, gender, and household characteristics, followed by invited guests sharing briefly their experiences reaching out and engaging many diverse groups in their work. Using a Roundtable format, all of us will participate in discussing what we see as opportunities and challenges as Lake City grows and changes.

Speakers include:

Rachel Miller 
APA member and planner with Makers Architecture and Urban Design

Amber Trout 
North Seattle Family Center and UW PhD Student in Interdisciplinary Planning

Lisa Uemoto 
SHA Community Builder for Lake City Court

Come for coffee and talk with these experienced professionals and your neighbors about strengthening the Lake City’s design and identity for the future.

The Washington Chapter of the American Planning Association’s Community Planning Assistance Team (CPAT) is co-hosting a series of “Coffee Talks" for the Lake City community with the Lake City Neighborhood Alliance.

The Coffee Talks are a series of community learning opportunities to help educate our community on planning elements that will impact the success of planning for our neighborhood’s growth and development.

The intent of the Coffee Talks is to learn about key concepts that could help guide our work on the Pierre Property redevelopment and with City agencies on meeting our broader neighborhood plan goals.
