Creating better multi-family housing

March 9th, 2010 · No Comments

The Seattle City Council wants to create new rules for multi-family housing options. That includes townhouses, rowhouses and apartments.

Councilmember Sally J. Clark is holding a special meeting on March 20 at Greenwood’s Taproot Theatre.

It’s time to change the way we design and shape new lowrise buildings in Seattle. City Council will change the code to make quality, sustainable, well-designed multifamily housing that synchs with the neighborhoods where they are built – and we need your help! This is a prime opportunity for Councilmembers to hear your feedback.

The meeting is from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturday, March 20 at Taproot, 204 N. 85th St. Council staff will highlight some of the hot-button issues, such as parking requirements, building heights, density limits, code simplification, and design review requirements. Clark promises plenty of time set aside for hearing from constituents. Coffee and doughnuts will be provided.

For more information, contact Clark’s office at 206-684-8802 or sally.clark@seattle.gov.
