My thoughts on building walkable neighborhoods & some comments on obesity when we waive sidewalk requirements 
With apologies to Gabriel García Márquez. Obesity is our modern day cholera. It's slowly killing people. Perhaps worse, it's lowering the quality of living for individuals & communities. That's why it's so disappointing ...

If you're looking for a place to host an event in the city of Seattle, there is no better place. The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation does great work & Washingtonians are lucky to have such a committed group.
