Civic Center Commons: Creating Inclusive Public Space

12:30 p.m. | Wednesday, February 8, 2017

The city and many community partners are bringing new and dynamic attractions and experiences to the Civic Center Commons — Civic Center Plaza, United Nations Plaza and the space between — while better engaging and serving the low- or no-income people who rely on these spaces every day. Hear from the multi-disciplinary team that is currently working on this complex equation and learn how they’ve outlined a road map for creating a truly inclusive public space. Generously sponsored by Zendesk.
