On Tuesday, October 6th, Seattle mayor Ed Murray hosted the Cascadia Beyond from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM at City Hall. Participants were invited to join a conversation about ideas and challenges facing transit and transportation in the Pacific Northwest, and how planning along regional, and mega-regional lines, might be able to help.

In all more than 15,000 people had the chance to see the map at this years 2015 ESRI User Conference at UC San Diego, July 20th-24th. Awesome photo by Alex Philip @BigDataAlex on twitter!
In very exciting news, David McCloskey's new map of the Cascadia bioregion has been chosen to grace the cover of the new 2015 map book being put out by the geography organization ESRI. It will also be featured at their upcoming conference.
When discussing Cascadia, there's almost nothing as contentious as discussing the proposed borders. Should it defined simply by the bioregion and environmental features? Washington, British Columbia and Oregon? Surrounding regions and counties? Or a mix of political, cultural, economic and geography all blurred together?
