City Council is hosting Urban Village Community Design Workshops in early 2017 to help inform City Council and the Office of Planning and Community development about how our Urban Villages should look, feel, and function in support of important citywide goals for increased affordability, design quality, and more diverse housing options throughout Seattle.
RSVP is strongly encouraged. Due to the meeting format, space in facilitated work groups is limited. The format of the workshops is an opening, overview presentation about HALA, Urban Villages, and the Mandatory Housing Affordability program followed by small group conversations. Childcare, snacks, and drinks will be provided at event. We look forward to hearing from you. To RSVP or ask questions about the event, please contact Spencer Williams at Spencer.Williams@seattle.gov or by phone at (206) 384-2709.
We welcome a lively interchange of ideas and opinions on the recently proposed zoning changes for your neighborhood, including where the boundary for urban villages should be drawn, what mix of zones best support the context and conditions of local areas, and how to encourage more housing options and elements of livability (including neighborhood amenities such as frequent and reliable transit, community-serving businesses, parks and schools).
