If you are interested in this...

Speaking as a fellow architect, this is part of a continuing ed program run by the Center for Architecture for professionals to maintain their credentials with an element of community outreach that's open to the public. When public policy issues are the topic of discussion it often generates substantial outside interest, as this one promises to do. For anyone who is interested in attending, I’d urge you to go to the link and sign up sooner rather than later. These things fill up. Don’t expect to just show up at the door and get in. But it's often a great peak behind the curtain at the local and regional planning process and what our public servants are up to with opportunities to ask questions. This looks like a good one. And there's always a table with wine and cheese.
