The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is hosting a series of what it calls “conversations on affordable housing” throughout the city. The DON wants residents’ feedback on proposed zoning changes to create more affordable housing in all neighborhoods.

The first conversation is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Bitter Lake Community Center, 13035 Linden Ave. N.

See the Housing Affordability & Livability Agenda website for maps that show draft neighborhood zoning changes. The neighborhood maps that will be highlighted at the Dec. 3 meeting are:

  • Aurora-Licton Springs
  • Ballard
  • Bitter Lake
  • Crown Hill
  • Greenwood/Phinney
  • NE 130th

Representatives from other city departments will be at the meeting to discuss residents’ thoughts and concerns about: Parks and Recreation – development plan; Department of Transportation – Metro Rapid Ride; Transportation and Construction and Inspections – parking reform; Office of Sustainability and the Environment; Ethics & Elections – democracy vouchers; Human Services Division – fair housing.
