In this second (preview) episode of The Urbanist’s podcast, my fellow host Ray Dubicki and I continue on our journey toward becoming podcasters, which (hint, hint) is not as easy as it might seem. We also discuss the sad demise of Washington State’s proposed HB 1782, a.k.a. the missing middle housing bill, as well as public feedback the City of Seattle is seeking on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for is proposed changes to industrial zones.
As always, you can expect it to be riveting stuff — even if we are still honing our techniques. Also, if you want to learn more about the topics we cover and have not read the accompanying articles yet, it’s highly encouraged you do. To make that very simple, the articles are linked both above and below.
Finally, Ray REALLY wants you to comment on the EIS for Seattle’s proposed industrial rezones. Community feedback is needed for this important document, especially from people who live in impacted communities or our members of groups that have been historically affected by industry in Seattle. Comments are only open until March 2nd so time is of the essence.
