'Walkable City' author to address chamber breakfast

Staff report

He currently leads the Washington, D.C.-based design practice Speck & Associates, focusing on downtown master plans, waterfront visions, urban and suburban infill plans, transit-oriented designs, street plans and walkability studies.

The breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Julian Carroll Convention Center.  Strawberry Hills Pharmacy is the event's sponsor. Cost is $15.
