Participants will share anecdotes of their experiences and speak to why certain neighborhood icons are essential to Seattle’s community fabric. The forum is hosted in anticipation of report-back recommendations from Mayor Murray’s Commercial Affordability Advisory Committee, scheduled for the end of next month. The group is expected to recommend what policies or funding support may be necessary to preserve and protect Seattle’s iconic small businesses. Councilmember Herbold recently commissioned a Seattle Legacy Business Survey, which was intended to inform efforts to help preserve the bars, restaurants, cafés, and shops that give Seattle its unique character and sense of community. 470 people participated in the survey. Councilmember Herbold and several community members met with Mayor Murray’s Commercial Affordability Advisory Committee last month to propose a Seattle Legacy Business program.
