Tuesday night, people who live, work, edit an alt weekly and play on Capitol Hill will gather in the Broadway Performance Hall to talk about how Capitol Hill is changing — and how to make it better:
Demand is increasing for dense, walkable neighborhoods located near transit and jobs. On Capitol Hill, this demand has resulted in over 30 proposed developments with more than 2,500 units of housing and more than 250,000 square feet of commercial space. As demand for our neighborhood increases, how do we preserve affordability and economic and social diversity in the years to come?
Join Capitol Hill Housing for a lively panel discussion on the benefits and challenges of new development and policies to promote affordability.
Oh, and attention Dominic Holden, Tuesday night’s event will be emceed by Michael Wells of the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce. Unfortunately for Dominic, the panelist list is now full:
- Sally Clark, Seattle City Council Member
- Stephen O’Connor, Director of the University of Washington Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies
- Liz Dunn, Principal of Dunn + Hobbes, LLC
- Knute Berger, Columnist at Crosscut.com
- A-P Hurd, Vice President of Touchstone
The event is free to attend but online ticketing is already in “waitlist” mode — given the size of the hall, we say go for it.
