ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Information from the City of Seattle

Seattle City Councilmember Lisa Herbold (District 1, West Seattle & South Park) welcomed today’s announcement that Seattle Legacy Business Preservation was recommended by the Commercial Affordability Advisory Committee, and announced that she intends to pursue funding in the City budget to develop a small business preservation program in Seattle.

“Independent small businesses often define a neighborhood, and they need our help, lest they become the most recent victims of displacement as the economy booms. I expect a Legacy Business Preservation Program will give businesses a fighting chance as commercial rents increase,” said Councilmember Lisa Herbold. “It would be absolutely devastating to see a neighborhood business district become exclusively chain stores.”
