Can West Seattle be a more defined partner to promoting regional tourism?
Alki Beach has been nationally proclaimed a key destination beach, but stewardship is needed to insure it retains its neighborhood flavor as a local playground. A “Sustainable Tourism” approach offers the potential to share with visitors the diverse wonders of our peninsula and help create a vibrant and sustainable economic engine for West Seattle businesses.
We’ll be meeting in the Senior Center of West Seattle, 4217 SW Oregon Street, east around the corner from the intersection with California. Come at 6:30 pm for socializing and bring a light snack or other nibbles. The program begins at 7:00 pm and ends at 9:00 pm.
Heidi Siegelbaum and Steve Gersman, partners with Calyx Sustainable Tourism, and Greg Whittaker owner/operator of Alki Kayak Tours and Mountain to Sound Outfitters, will join Patti Mullen, West Seattle Chamber of Commerce, to engage in a dialogue about the potential for local tourism.
