Steve Osguthorpe and Mike Faulk

Appleseed attended Humanities Washington‘s “Think and Drink” session at Gilbert Cellars on Thursday evening. The topic was Shaping the Neighborhood: A Discussion of Urban Planning and the Downtown Master Plan. We are excited to bring this conversation to the blog, so that more of the community can listen and participate. Be sure to leave your comments. We’d love to hear from you.

This 22-minute recording presents the session’s introduction, which gives a history of urban planning in Yakima.

The speaker is Steve Osguthorpe, community development director for the city of Yakima, specializing in comprehensive planning and urban design. He is introduced by Mike Faulk , journalist with the Yakima Herald-Republic.

This introduction and the following five-part series are meant to tackle the history of city planning, asking: How does urban planning work? What goes into shaping a city? How can citizens affect the designs of their communities? And particularly, how does this relate to Yakima as it embarks on the master plan for downtown?
