McCall Center plans 'New Urbanism' with Earl Blumenauer
Congressman Blumenauer represents Oregon's 3rd District in the greater Portland area and is currently on the Budget Committee and Ways and Means Committee. Admission is free, and attendees are encouraged to arrive early as space is limited.
The public is invited to Pacific University's Taylor Auditorium in Marsh Hall at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 to take part in New Urbanism: A Conversation with Earl Blumenauer.
Presented by the university's Tom McCall Center for Policy Innovation, the forum will center around new urbanism, a design movement that promotes walkable neighborhoods containing a range of housing and job types.
Blumenauer has represented Oregon's 3rd District in the United States House of Representatives since 1997.
He will discuss new urbanism as it relates to environmental concerns, quality of life, transportation issues and public health.
Blumenauer is currently in the middle of new urbanism policy discussions on Capitol Hill and has spoken throughout the country about it.
Forest Grove and Pacific University are part of the metropolitan area urban growth system that Blumenauer has been observing and working on for more than 20 years.
Admission is free, and attendees are encouraged to arrive early as space is limited. A question-and-answer session with the Congressman will follow his talk.
Named after the former Oregon governor, the Tom McCall Center for Policy Innovation engages students to the practical side of citizenship and connects the University with the larger community on public policy issues.
