Hello, Neighbors!

We need your feedback about our Neighborhood Design Guidelines in the next 2 weeks, before the RNA sends it forward to the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Ordinance process.   At this time comments are very welcome and appreciated!

Last night, Jay Lazerwitz, along with Geoff Wentlandt & Ryan Moore of Department of Planning and Development (DPD), presented the latest draft of the Neighborhood Design Guidelines at the RNA General Meeting.

The Roosevelt Neighborhood Design Guidelines document supplements the Citywide Design Guidelines, so many issues that are important, may not show up in the neighborhood guidelines, as these are already included in the Citywide document.
