31 unit SEDU project to replace fourplex at 6555 Greenwood

On June 21st interested neighbors met with the developer and his architect who confirmed this will be a 31 unit development with only small units (under 300 sf). No parking is required and none will be provided. Rents will average around $1500/month. The developer claimed that only 10% of the residents are likely to have cars. Conceptual plans will be posted on the SDCI site within a few week. The project is subject to SEPA (environmental review) and Administrative Design Review (no involvement by the NW Design Review Board). The public will be invited to comment on the design but there is no public meeting. Check back here for info when available.

The fourplex at the site will be demolished.

City Council Redistricting

District 6 Public Forum is July 14th

According to the 2020 Census, Seattle’s population is 737,015, a growth of 21.1% since 2010. The redistricting process will ensure that, by the 2023 election cycle, each Seattle Council District will include approximately 105,288 people. To achieve this number, the Commission will redraw the boundary lines of all districts, expanding Districts 1, 2, 5, and 6 and contracting Districts 3, 4, and 7.

Attend a Public Forum Register in advance at https://seattle.surveymonkey.com/r/VXM2PGW

District 6 Public Forum: July 14, 2022 from 5:30pm-7:30pm

Physical: City Hall, 600 4th Avenue, Bertha Knight Landes Room

Virtual Link: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/82177793287

Information on Initial Map Alternatives can be found at city's website - links below. All 7 council members representing the current district's terms expire in December, 2023. Note that the initial maps show some odd boundaries on the north for D6 and the population estimates do NOT recognize all of the new units recently constructed or under construction now in D6 (Greenwood and other locations.) The Redistricting Commission is aware of this but uncertain how it will influence final District boundaries.
