Gig Harbor, WA - Did you miss the final presentation by the University of Washington this summer? The Waterfront Alliance is pleased to announce another UW Storefront Studio public open house and book sale at the Harbor History Museum on Tuesday November 5th from 5 to 6:30pm.

This popular downtown review was sponsored by the Downtown Waterfront Alliance. Ten Architecture and Planning students met with citizens and reviewed harbor properties and buildings for two months to enable the completion of the study.

Although 100 people attended a presentation in late August, many have requested another opportunity to review recommendations. Professor Jim Nicholls will return to Gig Harbor to review projects, make comments and to answer questions. Copies of the 132 page book summarizing the results will be available for a $20 donation to the Alliance.

Don’t miss this opportunity to visit the Harbor History Museum, see the new Donkey Creek improvements, and review the student’s recommendations all in one visit.

The Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to bringing together community and waterfront district stakeholders, encouraging economic vitality and preserving our historic character. The office is located at 3311 Harborview Drive, Suite 101. For information about the Alliance contact Mary DesMarais, Executive Director, at (253) 514-0071.
