When It Takes You Two Hours And Three Buses To Get To The Grocery Store

June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

It’s a privilege to be able to walk quickly or hop on a bike or a shared scooter. What may be an easy jaunt to an able-bodied, 20-something single dude can feel very different if you have a mobility disability, or if you’re blind, or if you have a kid or a grocery cart. It’s easy for privileged folks to support this vision of urbanism without addressing the profound disparities of race and wealth and disability that make a 15-minute…

People Centered Design in Smaller Cities: Rediscovering the Small-Town Roots of the 15-Minute City

June 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Throughout most of American history, cities and towns were built incrementally, with a fine-grained diversity of adaptive places and built at the scale of people – much like the neighborhoods envisioned today in “15-minute cities.” But recent decades have been different, encouraging large, homogeneous developments built all at once to a finished static state, optimized for the scale of the personal motor vehicle. Looking back on this “suburban experiment,” we have witnessed its detrimental effects on our health, our social…

Seattle's current growth strategy has led to displaced individuals and communities and starkly unequal outcomes based on race and income level. Can our new growth strategy address these historical wrongs? How can we ensure that planning for Seattle's future means planning for everyone?

Equity Considerations in the 15-Minute City

June 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

In line with its comprehensive plan, Seattle has focused most of its job and housing growth into roughly 30 “Urban Villages” and “Urban Centers” over the past 25 years. While the Urban Village growth strategy has increased density and walkability in these areas and organized an increasingly connected transit network, it has also contributed to displacement in these areas of focused growth while contributing to skyrocketing housing costs and inadequately addressing the large swaths of Seattle that remain auto dependent.…
