The first ERC Summit, held on January 9, 2016, was a rousing success!  Almost 200 people attended the six hour event at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, listening to inspirational speakers and identifying priorities for the next several years.

Watch this space for more news about the Summit and about the cross-sector partnerships that are being developed in support of corridor development.  From parks and recreation, arts and culture, multi-modal mobility, to economic development and land use planning … the ERC is where 21st Century standards for infrastructure re-purposing and redevelopment come together.
