2018 Seattle Economic Update, Infographic
I attended the 2018 State of Downtown put on by the Downtown Seattle Association this week. If you guys are unfamiliar, the Downtown Seattle Association has a mission of creating a healthy, vibrant Downtown. In 6o years of service to the Downtown core of Seattle, the DSA is an organization that I love to support. I’m both a member and an advocate.
