Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, in collaboration with Office of Housing, Seattle Parks & Recreation, Office of Planning & Community Development, Seattle Department of Transportation, and others, is hosting five Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA) Open Houses across the city this spring.
Everyone interested in making a more affordable, livable Seattle is invited to come, learn, and join in conversation with your neighbors. Each open house will feature maps detailing proposed changes to Urban Villages in the event’s specific focus region.
These open houses are a great chance to talk with City staff, connect with your neighbors, and share information. All ages are welcome, so feel free to bring the kids. We will have complimentary food and beverages.
If you can’t attend but want to know how to still make your voice heard, scroll to the bottom of this article.
