LGBTQ-Affirming Affordable Senior Housing: Community Visioning Workshop

Tuesday, December 19, 2017 - 5:30 pm @ 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
The Summit
420 East Pike Street
LGBTQ-Affirming Affordable Senior Housing: Community Visioning Workshop @ The Summit

Share your ideas for Seattle’s first LGBTQ-affirming affordable senior housing development to be built at the corner of Union St. and 14th Ave. Join Capitol Hill Housing, Environmental Works, and other community partners for an evening to identify common goals and a shared vision for the project. Food and drink will be provided. All are welcome.

RSVP isn’t required, but it helps us get an accurate headcount so we can have the right amount of food and chairs.

Discussion during the evening will help inform designs for a planned mixed-use building to be built by the neighborhood community development organization Capitol Hill Housing. Preliminary plans call for up to 66 affordable homes for low-income seniors 55 years or older and just under four thousand square feet of first-floor retail space. Anyone who meets age and income requirements will be eligible to live in the building.

We want to hear from you about ways design, commercial tenants, and other partnerships can be leveraged in this project to support LGBTQ elders in the community.
