Greenwood Community Council discusses housing affordability tonight

The Greenwood Community Council will discuss neighborhood growth and housing affordability at 7 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.

There is broad agreement that housing affordability is one of the most critical issues we face as our City grows and becomes more prosperous. Last year, Mayor Murray developed an action plan and community engagement is expected to ramp up this spring. In preparation for engagement on this important issue, GCC will facilitate an open and interactive community forum on growth and affordability.

The intent of the meeting is to outline Greenwood’s key affordability issues and questions, discuss opportunities, and lay the groundwork for further focused study by committees and feedback to the City. Please bring your ideas/questions and be prepared to share them with your neighbors.

The housing affordability issue is set to be discussed from about 7:20-8:30 p.m. Before that, the meeting will have a guest speaker from Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and also will discuss neighborhood speed limits.

Please note that the library’s garage closes at 8 p.m., so if you park in the garage you’ll need to move your car before then.
