Attend A Seattle City Hearing on Lowrise Development


Believe it or not, the city takes a lot of feedback from Seattleites and seriously considers it.

January 14th there will be an opportunity to provide your feedback to the city of Seattle about how they regulate housing developments. Specifically, the city wants feedback on how lowrise developments should be built to fit into local neighborhoods. Here are the details of the meeting:

We are studying recent buildings constructed in lowrise multifamily zoned areas, particularly the lowrise 3 areas. We will be considering code changes to help ensure the new buildings fit into the neighborhoods. To help guide our clean-up of the Lowrise 3 multi-family zones, we’re reaching out to interested groups. In particular we want to hear from neighborhood residents who live in or near lowrise multi-family zoned areas. We also want to hear directly from builders and designers of housing.

Here are the details of the meeting:


Tuesday, January 14, 2014, 6:30 – 8pm


Lowell Elementary School
1058 E. Mercer St.
Seattle, WA
