Join Us for Community Conversations on Affordable Housing and More

HALA Outreach

The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, in collaboration with other City departments, is seeking feedback on a new program to create affordable housing in our neighborhoods and, more specifically, on the proposed zoning changes required to make that happen.  We will be hosting feedback events throughout the city over the next several months and you are invited to participate!

We heard from many of you that City Scoop was a great model for engaging in and sharing information, so we are injecting some food and fun into this next round of meetups as well! We’ll be highlighting maps that show draft neighborhood affordable housing proposals (read more about those here). In addition, there will be opportunities to learn about transportation projects in your neighborhood, hear what’s going on at the Office of Sustainability and Environment, and give feedback on upcoming Parks investments.

Starting December 3rd, we have five events planned at spaces around the city and we’d love to see you there.

December 3, 10am-12pm
NW Neighborhoods at Bitter Lake Community Center

December 7, 5:30-7:30pm (2 locations)
SW Neighborhoods at Shelby’s Bistro & Ice Creamery

SW Neighborhoods at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center

  • UPDATE: We heard concerns about having enough room for our West Seattle Open House at Shelby’s (capacity is 80). In order to address these concerns and accommodate more people, we have added a second open house in the theatre space at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW). We will now be at both locations on December 7th, 5:30-7:30pm. Both locations will be staffed by city representatives and will include MHA maps for all neighborhoods. (WE WILL NO LONGER BE AT UPTOWN ESPRESSO.)

December 13, 6-8pm
NE Neighborhoods at Ravenna Community Center

January 10, 6-8pm
Central Neighborhoods at Optimism Brewing

February 4, 10am-12pm
SE Neighborhoods at The Royal Room

We hope to see you there!
