YPT Event Discount: Smart Growth Social

Hey DC-area YPTers!

The Coalition for Smarter Growth, the DC region’s leading organization advocating for transit, pedestrian, and bicycling infrastructure, has invited YPT members and friends to attend its Smart Growth Social with special guest and author Jeff Speck on Wednesday, October 2.

We’ve worked with the Coalition for Smarter Growth to offer YPT members and friends a special YPT-only discounted ticket price of $20. Read on for all the great details to this event, and to purchase tickets. Hope to see you there!

Tasty refreshments. Good conversation. Supporting more transit, walking, and biking in DC. What’s not to love?

Join the Coalition for Smarter Growth on Wednesday, October 2 from 6:30 – 8:30pm at DC’s Eastern Market for the 2013 Smart Growth Social and Fundraiser, featuring author Jeff Speck, who Planning Magazine says is “one of the few practitioners and writers in the field who can make a 312-page book on a basic planning concept seem too short.”

Using the special YPT-only link in this blog post, tickets are only $20, and proceeds from the event help the Coalition for Smarter Growth continue our work to strengthen walkable and inclusive communities in our region.

Yes! I’ll buy tickets right now >>

Thank you for your support! We hope to see you there!


Hors d’oeuvres will be provided by Beuchert’s Saloon, a new addition to the Eastern Market neighborhood dining scene. Beuchert’s serves fresh produce, locally sourced from their Montgomery County family farm, in playful American fare with a creative twist.

We’ll also raffle off great prizes from local establishments, like two $50 gift cards to Founding Famers.

Thanks to the 2013 Smart Growth Social Host Committee: Annie-Marie Bairstow | Emily Conrad | Roger Diedrich | Shannon Duffy | Ron Eichner | Jaime Fearer | Kerry Gathers | Joe Kakesh | Malcolm Kenton | Jeffrey Norman | Denise Schlener | Fuller Sherrod | Tina Slater | Douglas Stewart | Bob Summersgill | Kyle Todd | Ward3Vision
