Prairie Line Trail Historic Interpretation Project Community Meeting on July 21
The City of Tacoma is holding a community meeting regarding the Prairie Line Trail Historic Interpretation Project on Thursday, July 21, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the Washington State History Museum (1911 Pacific Ave.) during the Third Thursday Art Walk. The public is invited to come meet the project team, share what the Prairie Line Trail means to them, and participate in discussions about the project. Free refreshments will be available. Input on the project can also be provided by completing a brief survey.
This project will draw on historic resources and community input to develop an interpretive strategy recognizing the significance and diverse history of the corridor. In addition, the effort will include early implementation of that strategy through the design and installation of five to seven interpretive features. The intent is to make the corridor’s history accessible and engaging to a broad audience through innovative interpretive approaches including public art, electronic media and onsite signage or markers.
“The Prairie Line Trail is an incredible opportunity to embrace and share the historic and community significance of this unique public space,” said Associate Planner Elliott Barnett.
