Webinar with Councilmember Dan Strauss, Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021

Time: 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Location: Zoom videoconference

Please join us to hear special guest Councilmember Dan Strauss (District 6) discuss homelessness in Seattle. In September 2020, Councilmember Strauss introduced his homeless management strategy to his constituency when he said: “Homelessness throughout district 6 is untenable” and also “Our parks, libraries and Metro buses should not be our de-facto homeless shelters”. Come and hear him review the progress he is making in implementing this aggressive strategy.

There will be a Question & Answer session with Councilmember Strauss after his presentation, with Vice President Glenn Singer as moderator. Attendees may ask questions directly in the videoconference, or by submitting them through the chat feature or in advance by email to the moderator.

We will also devote time for reports from the Housing, Shorelines, Land Use, Quality of Life, and Communications committees, and for any new business.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Registration is presently limited to 100 participants. The Zoom service is available as an application for computers, as an app for iPhones or Android phones, or via browser. Please configure your device before the meeting to ensure your participation.
