Wallingford Urban Village Community Design Workshop, Tuesday January 17

You are needed now! Join your neighbors to help us all Keep Seattle Livable!

Come to the Wallingford Urban Village Community Design Workshop

Tuesday January 17, 6:00 – 9:00 PM. (Come late if you have to. Showing up matters!)
Hamilton International Middle School, 1610 North 41st Street.
Hosted by Councilmember Rob Johnson.

We’ll explore clear and meaningful ways to be part of decisions about our neighborhood. We still have time to stop forced “upzoning” that will hurt Wallingford and surrounding areas. Don’t delay, it’s up to us to guide this process.

Here are the basics of what “Keep Seattle Livable” means:

  • Retain zoning that creates community.
  • Keep affordable rental prices and property taxes.
  • Protect our local small businesses.
  • Preserve yards, parks, trees, and sunlight.
  • Prevent massive developments next to houses.
  • Fund schools, parks, and roads with Impact Fees.

Learn what the city is not telling you at the WCC Home page.
Use this interactive MHA web map to see how the proposed zoning changes will affect you.

Tuesday January 17 at 6:00 PM – Bring your friends, see what the city is up to, and have your voice heard before it’s too late!

Voice your concerns at two public meetings this Tuesday December 13

Attend the PTSA School Deficit Meeting, or the HALA “Grand Bargain” Open House

Go to the City’s NE Neighborhoods Open House: Rezoning Maps + City Services meeting. Carry a yard sign, wear a green scarf and speak up with your concerns!

Go to the Seattle Public Schools PTSA Community Meetings on the Budget Gap. Ask about Impact Fees!


Enough with Levies! Impact Fees now!

  • Mayor Murray and the City Council have refused to impose developer Impact Fees during the recent building boom. This missing money is sorely needed to support schools, parks, transportation, and community centers. Impact fees are collected by Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Federal Way, and Shoreline. Currently, Seattle citizens are paying for development impacts, but developers are not. Ask for Impact Fees!
  • Seattle Public Schools just sent out a notice that they expect a budget deficit of $74 Million for the next school year. To read the Letter to Families from Dr. Nyland, Superintendent of Seattle Public Schools, click here.

Display a Yard Sign

We have more Yard Signs! The Keep Seattle Livable; No HALA “Grand Bargain” Upzones signs are in!  To request a sign go to:  http://www.wallingfordcc.org/yard-signs/.
