Spring Open Houses 

Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, in collaboration with the Seattle Office of Housing, Seattle Parks & Recreation, Seattle Office of Planning & Community Development, Seattle Department of Transportation, and others are hosting community Open Houses across the city. Everyone interested in making a more affordable, livable Seattle for all are invited to come, learn, and join in conversation with your neighbors and City staff.
What can I expect from these Open Houses?
You can check out all the information, talk with City staff and your neighbors. City staff will be available to talk one-on-one and can also take your comments. All meetings will have maps of urban villages if you would like to talk about proposed zoning changes. Click on the calendar links to the right to see which departments will be attending each meeting. 

What will be done with the comments collected?
Currently we are hearing questions and taking comments about Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA) proposed changes to neighborhood zoning. Public comment ends on June 30 after which City staff will review collected feedback and make adjustments to draft maps. We hope to provide summaries of your feedback over the course of the summer and into fall.
