The Roosevelt Neighborhood Association is holding another Land Use Academy session on Saturday, December 10, at 10 am at Calvary Christian Assembly on Roosevelt Way.
This session will be a community workshop focusing on the city’s draft plans to reshape transit-oriented neighborhoods. The mayor established the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda to address the affordability crisis in Seattle. Some of the HALA recommendations deal with changes to Urban Villages to accommodate Seattle’s growth in population. The proposed changes for the Roosevelt Neighborhood involve changes in the boundary of the urban village and in the zoning of almost every block.
The city will be holding a community meeting to present the proposed changes and have a conversation around them on Tuesday, December 13th at Ravenna Community Center. They will be accepting comments on the draft plan until the end of January.
Before their meeting, the RNA would like to gather feedback from our community on these changes in order to present our combined comments to the city. The Land Use Academy session will involve some presentations on the HALA and zoning draft plans and then group workshops to discuss the plans and gather feedback about them.
Please join us for this session to learn more about the plans and how much the changes will affect you and the neighborhood, and let your voice be heard. For more information, visit the Land Use Academy website.
