“Honey, I Shrunk the Lots” Coming to the Lincoln Theatre on Tuesday, February 15, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

“Honey I Shrunk the Lots,” an engaging presentation by noted Seattle architect Bill Kreager, FAIA, demonstrates how innovative site planning and high-quality, small-lot development can contribute to highly livable and sustainable communities.

Kreager first performed “Honey, I Shrunk the Lots” for a Skagit Valley audience in 2005.  That presentation, to a large crowd at the Lincoln Theatre, was highly acclaimed.  The upcoming presentation has been updated and will include examples from Skagit communities.  

A local panel will follow Kreager’s presentation, identifying opportunities and obstacles for “shrinking the lots” in Skagit communities:

  • Jan Ellingson, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate (moderator)
  • Brian Gentry, Landed Gentry Development
  • John Doyle, Town of LaConner
  • Ellen Gray, Washington Sustainable Food &  Farming Network

A reception will follow, from approximately 8:00 – 8:30 pm, allowing audience members to ask questions of the presenters, talk with each other, and share their thoughts with Envision Skagit citizen committee members and staff. 

This event is free and open to the public.  No ticket is required; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please let others know who might be interested in attending the event!
