On January 25, the City kicks off a five-month speaker series on themes related to the City's Comprehensive Plan. Each month, a speaker will present a topic relating to the Comprehensive Plan component that will be before the Planning Commission the following week.

Charles R. Wolfe
Mr. Wolfe is a writer and contributor of articles on urban development topics to The Atlantic and The Huffington Post as well as being an attorney in Seattle where he focuses on land use and environmental law and permitting. 

He will be speaking on "The Six Urbanist Themes for 2012" as they relate to Shoreline's Vision and Community Design. He is known for his innovative use of land use regulatory tools and sustainable development techniques on behalf of both the private and public sectors to successfully redevelop infill properties.

Following each speaker's presentation, attendees will be invited to mingle and share ideas with staff and other participants. These ideas will be transformed into new goals and policies for the Comprehensive Plan that will guide future decisions made by City officials and staff. The Comprehensive Plan is the primary tool used by local governments to guide decisions regarding the use of land, housing, transportation, community design, economic development, infrastructure and natural resources.
