Recording Available of April 24th GLCC/PRCC Co-Hosted Zoom Meeting Revealing Major Changes Coming to Seattle Neighborhoods

by Shana Kelly, Chair of Green Lake Community Council and Alice Poggi, Chair of Phinney Ridge Community Council

Green Lake and Phinney Ridge Community Councils co-hosted a ZOOM meeting with City Planners about the One Seattle Comprehensive Plan and changes proposed for zoning and land use regulations in our neighborhoods. Many questions came up about the new ‘Neighborhood Centers’ mapped at 65th/Phinney, Tangletown, and Winona Triangle. Other questions had to do with the state legislature passing HB1110 last year that allows between 4 and 6 units on every residentially zoned lot (i.e., the former Single Family zones now called NR zones.)

The DEADLINE for comments on the Environmental Impact Statement accompanying the proposed One Seattle Plan is May 6, 2024 at 5 pm.

See the map of expanded Urban Centers and Neighborhood Centers in District 6 on the Seattle Comp Plan Update Info page.
