A.K.A. the “Funeral of the Neighborhood Voice”
Thursday October 26, 6:00 – 7:30 PM
Hales Brewery (in the Palladium)
4301 Leary Way NW
Wear black as together we mourn the loss of our Neighborhood Voice
The City wants to remove Single-Family zoning language from our Neighborhood Plan to allow for upzones and increased building heights in our neighborhood. This Thursday, the City is having an Open House in which they want to “start a discussion” around changes to five neighborhood plans.
If you think that neighborhoods should have a voice, and believe that residents, neighborhood businesses, schools and the city should all be involved and working together to plan the future – then wear black and attend the Open House.
We can make a statement about our lack of voice. Here’s how:
- Show up, dressed in black as a visual protest of the City killing our Neighborhood Plans by controlling its language and not allowing neighborhood-directed planning.
- The City will ask you to rewrite a section of our neighborhood plan to remove single family zoning language and will dictate what language is allowable, or ask you to choose one of their options. Instead, we recommend you tell the City that our neighborhood plans and zoning should only be changed through a formal neighborhood planning process.
Please join us for the “Funeral of the Neighborhood Voice”.
