Still making your mind up about the Highway 99 tunnel? The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce invites you to an informal lunch panel discussion this Wednesday, 11:45 am at The Kenney, and today is the deadline to RSVP. Read on for the Chamber’s official announcement:
Keeping our sights set on the future, our January “brown bag” lunch will focus on “Why the Tunnel Works” and is your opportunity to come and listen to the facts from key stakeholders about the Alaskan Way Viaduct “bored tunnel” project.
John Creighton (Commissioner, Port of Seattle) and Dave Gerring (Director, Manufacturing Industrial Council) will provide us with facts about keeping our economy moving and why the Deep Bored Tunnel is both critical to the economic health of our region and the best choice.
Please join us for a very informal luncheon. It’s a “build your own” sandwich bar – so come early, enjoy some networking, and be prepared for a lively session!
Be sure to RSVP to reserve your spot. Guests and nonmembers are always welcome. We hope to see you there!
$25 admission, $20 for members with RSVP by January 24th.
When you call to make your reservation, you may pay in advance using a visa or mastercard if you wish to speed up your check in time on the day of the luncheon.
RSVP by calling the Chamber at 932-5685.
The Chamber has endorsed the tunnel, which the state has deemed its “preferred alternative.” An environmental review is currently under way.
