City’s Central Waterfront Project Team Recognized

Remember the design finalists’ presentations event held at Benaroya Hall back in September?

The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Puget Sound Chapter recently honored the Central Waterfront Project Team with a “2011 Totem Award Certificate of Excellence” for the Central Waterfront event held at Benaroya Hall on September 15, 2010. The competition was open to all public relations and marketing professionals in the region and there were 47 entries this year. Awards were presented to the best public relations programs, tactics and practitioners. Sonia Palma, SDOT, and My Tam H. Nguyen, Department of Planning and Development, received the award on behalf of the entire team at a recent Totem Awards Banquet.

The city is gearing up for another exciting public event tonight. James Corner and his project team will be presenting an analysis and aspirations for the Central Waterfront, and the public will have an opportunity to engage on design priorities. The meeting will take place tonight, February 17, at the Seattle Aquarium from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (RSVP at rsvp@waterfrontseattle.org).
