CONNECTIONS: ENERGIZING SPOKANE'S CORE
Building on a legacy through the Riverfront Park Redevelopment Project
The Riverfront Park redevelopment is a comprehensive plan to improve Spokane’s downtown urban park for the next generation. Riverfront Park is the former site of Expo '74 the Word's Fair and is consistently ranked as one of the top tourist attrCONNactions in Spokane; however, it had not seen a significant upgrade in more than 40 years. Spokane citizens overwhelmingly approved a $64M bond to redevelop the park.
Our keynote speaker, Garrett Brown, has guided numerous open space municipal projects from initial visioning through permitting, construction, and operations as City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Landscape Designer, Landscape Architect and Assistant Director of Park Operations for eight years.
Garrett’s presentation will tell the story of the Riverfront Redevelopment project from community outreach and citizen’s trust in managing multiple consultants and construction projects. This project included many unique construction projects and diverse types of construction management processes including design-build.
Don’t miss this informative presentation and learn about community-inspired projects; collaborating with vendors, partners, and managing numerous unique projects simultaneously.
Why not register right now?!? In fact, this is a great opportunity to bring a co-worker so they can experience our dinner meeting and earn PDU's too. We love when you bring guests to our events!
