Shoreline Mayor Cindy Ryu on the Radio

KUOW's Phyllis Fletcher produced a radio story yesterday about local real estate developers and government officials working out ideas for regional planning by playing a game called "Reality Check." Shoreline Mayor Cindy Ryu is part of the story. The story aired on 94.9fm KUOW yesterday. Here's the lead and a link to the text and audio...

How do you look at the whole region of Puget Sound, and plan for the future? First you get a big map, and some LEGOs. Then you play a game that real estate developers and government officials have played in cities all over the country. Seattle is the latest to give it a try. It's called "Reality Check." And it happened yesterday (April 30th) at the University of Washington.
