ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

information from JuNO

It’s not enough for the City of Seattle to reach out only to single-family home residents affected by the recently proposed upzone and boundary expansion of the West Seattle Junction Urban Village – apartment residents should have their voices heard as well, said the Land Use Committee of the Junction Neighborhood Organization (JuNO).

Last week came word that the City Office of Planning and Community Development will canvass residents in single-family homes slated to be upzoned under the controversial Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA). That effort needs to be expanded to those living in apartment buildings, the committee said.

“Apartment residents deserve the chance to ask the City any number of critical questions, including how many units of affordable housing the HALA plan will create specifically in our urban village, what kind of units will be available for what income levels – including those for families – and why the upzoning is taking place even before we know where the light rail stations will be placed,” said committee member Christy Tobin-Presser.
