Saving the historic qualities of our Urban Villages
Thursday, September 25, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
The Towne, 1926 Queen Anne Avenue North
The Queen Anne Historical Society hosts a conversation with local experts in historic preservation, contemporary architecture and urban planning about how to promote dense multi-family housing while simultaneously preserving the historic qualities of our commercial zones. It may be time to adjust our urban village concept and discover new ways to protect our single family neighborhoods while encouraging the prevention of suburban sprawl.
Presenting will be David Hewitt, Hewitt Architects; Eugenia Woo, Historic Seattle; Mark Huppert, National Trust for Historic Preservation's Green Lab; and Mary McCumber, Urban Planner.
Light refreshments will follow.
The Queen Anne Historical Society holds five public meetings each year featuring programs emphasizing community and Washington history. The meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of January, March and May, September, and November. If necessary, the November meeting is moved so as to not conflict with Thanksgiving.
The Board of Trustees meets the second Wednesday of each month except July. Members are welcome to attend. If interested, please email us for location and time.
