CascadiaCast Episode 2: Cory Crocker

Podcast Logo_extended-01-01

This week I’m joined by Cory Crocker, an active University District resident who helps head up U District Square. The group is working to secure parks and open space amenities as the cory-crockerneighborhood rapidly grows and faces a population boom with the arrival of a light rail station in only six short years. The U-District has a dearth of open space that the city is trying to address, and Cory is passionate about the option of a large central plaza. He’s also been working on a streetscape project with a new parklet and possible sidewalk cafes. We also discussed the medley of transportation and housing options in the neighborhood and recent trends in the design and management of public space.

I’m still learning as I go and it’s now much more obvious a noisy coffee shop isn’t the best location for recording audio; headphones may improve the listening experience this episode. But as promised, the series is now available on iTunes (search for “CascadiaCast”). You can also subscribe via RSS: http://northwesturbanist.libsyn.com/rss.
