Film screenings, conference to address Stanwood’s future

STANWOOD — Free showings of “Carbon Nation,” a documentary by Peter Byck, are scheduled in advance of a conference this month regarding the future of the greater Stanwood community.

Organizers of the “Sustainable Destiny by Design” conference plan to show the film at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Snow Goose Bookstore, 8616 271st St. NW; 11:30 a.m. Monday at the Stanwood Camano Community Resource Center, Stanwood Towne Center, 9322 271st Suite A-9; and 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Camano Country Club Fire Station, 1326 Elger Bay Road.

A community meeting about the future of the area generally within the boundaries of the Stanwood-Camano School District is set for 6 p.m. July 23 at Stanwood Middle School.

Over the course of three days, a visiting team from the American Institute of Architects plans to offer ideas about how people in the area can control the economic and design future of the community.
