Fall Bus Tour 2012

October 19th

Fall Bus Tour 2012

The PCHTF is now taking reservations for its Fall Bus Tour scheduled for Friday morning October 19th.  The last of 3 tours during 2012, the itinerary will focus on affordable housing in the Urban Core.

The Urban Core is a component of Capital Crossroads, a community planning initiative designed to guide the Des Moines metro for the next five years.  The Urban Core is defined as the area immediately north and west of I-235 and east of MLK Parkway.  It is the oldest and poorest section of the city.  This tour will explore the demographics of the area, challenges and opportunities for creation of affordable housing and highlight the successes already occurring in the neighborhoods.

The tour will begin at 9am and depart from the PCHTF offices near Third and Court.  It will conclude at the same location at approximately 11:15.  Free parking is provided.  Call Carol Duncan at 282-3233 or email cduncan@pchtf.org to reserve your seat now.
