The National Building Museum downtown is a pretty fantastic resource. In addition to unique exhibits and a stellar kids’ play-area, they also host a variety of Speakers Series’ throughout the year. Next week, their focus will be on White Flint!
As part of the Smart Growth Series, I’ll be at the museum on Wednesday, February 5th from 12:30-1:30pm to share how the community is collaborating to ensure that a redeveloped White Flint reaches its potential. Admission is free and pre-registration is available. More details are below (as a side note – we’re always available to tell your community group more about what’s happening in White Flint – just email us at info@WhiteFlint.org).
