The Greenwood Community Council meets Tuesday evening (tomorrow). The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.
On the agenda are several big items:
- Re-imagining Aurora’s Streetscape and Environment
Aurora remains unsafe and a barrier between neighborhoods. In 2017 on Aurora there were 280 collisions causing 2 deaths and injuring 181 people. Lee Bruch will present slides of the opportunities that have been lost and the opportunities that can be regained. GCC may vote on whether to join a coalition to push hard for some attention to Aurora.
- Update on Town Center Zoning and Building Height Limits
After three years of discussion and amidst ongoing lawsuits, Seattle has issued a 370-page city-wide zoning ordinance planned for passage next fall, including some unexpected height increases proposed in downtown Greenwood. Rob Fellows will provide a brief update.
- The Future of the Greenwood Boys and Girls Club
Boys & Girls Clubs of King County recently entered into a partnership with Bellwether Housing to redevelop their Greenwood property. The goals of the partnership are to provide youth program services to local kids, teens, and families and provide affordable housing options for Greenwood residents for years to come. To proceed with a new development that would include both affordable housing and a Boys & Girls Clubs facility, the site must be rezoned. Bellwether Housing and Boys & Girls Clubs will join us on to talk more about their plans and their hopes to change the zoning of the site. GCC will be asked to support the rezone request.
