In November 2011, one of the Urban Chat co-founders began a blog about the need for more walkable urbanism. A few months later, another co-founder, intrigued by the blog, suggested a meeting. On Wednesday, June 13, 2012, four people met at the Aqus Café and Urban Chat was born. Three of those four, who remain active to this day, are shown below.
Since that founding, Urban Chat has grown from monthly meetings to spinning off committees to testifying at Council meetings to hosting forums and doing whatever else we can to push our mission forward. And we plan to keep doing this for a long time, in part because it's needed and in part because we like the people with whom we share a passion.
