Our friends at Utility² would like to invite NWAEP members to Infrastructure Week.

Infrastructure Week (IW) 2019
May 13-20

Kick-off Event: Monday, May 13 at Optimism Brewery, Seattle

Infrastructure Week is a nation-wide week of events designed to elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans.

At IW events in Seattle, Utility² will showcase our city’s infrastructure-related projects and initiatives, primarily showing how investing in — and carefully planning — long-term development strategies has directly benefited our communities and regional ecosystems, and explaining how these strategies remain imperative to the sustainability of our modernity.

During IW-2019,
Utility² aims to bring together the public, private, and non-profit sectors to highlight innovation, sustainability, career opportunities, and long-term strategies to inspire community engagement and investment within our infrastructure at all levels: For Our Environment. For Our Community. For Earth’s Future.

IW-2019 kicks off with an evening of presentations and a Q&A panel discussion at 5pm on Monday, May 13th at Optimism Brewery. A variety of facility tours will be hosted Tuesday through Thursday, each with its own theme to highlight the critical issues of urbanization.

Presenters for the May 13 kick-off event include:

  • SoundTransit: express buses, light rail, and commuter train services for the central Puget Sound Region
  • Commute Seattle: part of Downtown Transportation Alliance (DTA) and ORCA Card Programs
  • NW Eco-building Guild: 501(c)(3) community of builders, designers, suppliers, homeowners, and partners concerned with ecological building in the Pacific Northwest
