UPDATE: The RSVP deadline for this event was November 10th. Thank you.
Community participation is needed at a Community Design Workshop that the City Council is hosting to gather feedback on the newly released draft rezoning maps for the upzone and expansion of Crown Hill Urban Village. Renters, home owners, businesses and landlords are encouraged to participate.
The workshop is scheduled for November 15, from 5:30 to 9:30 pm with a reception and opportunity to view the maps from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. RSVP’s are requested by November 10th. Space is limited.
During the event, participants can learn more and weigh in on changes proposed for the neighborhood. The Office of Planning and Community Development and City Council will use your feedback to inform the vision of how the Crown Hill Urban Village should look, feel, and function in support of citywide affordable housing goals.
The Crown Hill Urban Village Committee for Smart Growth has already begun to gather community input on the draft maps; hosting a meeting at the Greenlake Library on Saturday, November 5. Roughly 50 community members joined the Committee and guest Councilmember Mike O’Brien in discussing the draft maps, the new zoning and the new boundaries. While there was general support for growth focused on arterials, there was strong pushback from community members on the extensive rezoning of the residential streets closest to the arterials, as well as other concerns and questions. The Committee for Smart Growth volunteers are compiling the notes from the meeting and capturing the questions and concerns raised by participants. We’ll be sharing it on our website. Everyone who’s subscribed for our email will get a copy as well.
During the City-sponsored meeting on Tuesday, November 15, community members will be asked for their ideas and opinions on the recently proposed zoning changes, 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, sidewalks and schools as the City grows.
When: Tuesday, November 15th from 5:30-9:30PM
Where: Whitman Middle School Library
9201 15th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98117
