The Ghosts of Seattle’s Past project and Councilmember Lisa Herbold (District 1, West Seattle & South Park) will host an evening forum tomorrow, providing artists and residents an opportunity to highlight the Seattle small businesses they want to see preserved in the face of booming development. 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.
