There’s a busy slate of events to start the week around Capitol Hill — here are a few opportunities for you to fulfill your civic duty and get involved:
- New Hugo House: Monday night you can help set the direction for the new Hugo House as the nonprofit plans its new facility destined to be part of a mixed-use project planned for its current home across from Cal Anderson Park:
Now that we’re in the later stages of space-planning, we’d love to get more specific feedback from you about what you’d like from our classrooms, performance space, and all other aspects of the new Hugo House
Hugo House is also asking for community members to fill out this brief survey to provide feedback on the project.
- Banks for Council kick-off: Election organizers People for Pamela Banks will hold a campaign kick-off party Monday night at 11th and Pike’s Sole Repair:
We have the opportunity to bring new leadership to the Council that reflects the diversity of our city. This is the time to build great neighborhoods for all members of District 3, I invite you to come join the conversation.
If the politics don’t interest you, maybe food from Jamil’s Big Easy will win you over. CHS wrote here about the Urban League CEO’s decision to enter the race against sitting City Council member Kshama Sawant in Seattle’s new District 3.
- Levy happy hour: SDOT director Scott Kubly will be in the Central District Monday night to help push the Move Seattle levy that is set to appear on November’s ballot. Kubly and SDOT reps will be at Chuck’s starting at 5:30 PM. “We’ve been hosting a series of daytime coffee hours that have resulted in some great dialogue and feedback – this is yet another chance for people to learn a little more and share their priorities and ideas, and ask questions,” SDOT says about the Monday night event.
- Unite for Marriage — Seattle: There are still battles to be fought for marriage equality. Tuesday night, groups are planning a downtown Seattle rally to support marriage equality across the nation:
On April 28th, SCOTUS will hear oral arguments on the subject of national marriage equality. Movement leaders will stand in solidarity with communities across the nation to send a message of love and understanding, as well as celebrate local progress made so far.
- Design review survey reminder: You don’t have to leave your seat for this one. CHS wrote here about the Department of Planning and Development effort to rethink Seattle’s design review process. You can provide feedback on the Design Review program via this survey.
