Summary of Actions to Take re: U District Upzone Proposal
City Councilmember Lisa Herbold visited the Seattle Neighborhood Coalition on May 14. She explained that the City Council is now beginning to review the Seattle 2035 Comprehensive Plan in various committees.
Contrary to usual practice, she said, the elements of the Comp Plan will be split among committees by topic, rather than being handled exclusively in the Land Use committee. After the initial hearings, amendments will be proposed in the Land Use committee.
Here’s the schedule of committee hearings on the Comp Plan, as provided by Ms. Herbold.
"Over 1500 low cost housing units & small businesses threatened" "City's DPD refuses to even study these impacts"
This coming Wednesday 10AM the Growth Management Hearings Board will be hearing the Seattle Displacement Coalition's appeal of the UDistrict Upzone - a plan to cover the district with 240-320' towers and that threatens over 1500 units of existing low income housing and dozens of small businesses - This Wed 10:00pm May 4th before the State Growth Managements Hearing Board, 40th floor of Seattle Municipal Building 700 5th Ave.
