Scoping Comments - HALA MHA-R Environmental Impact Statement

The HALA Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA) requires that all new multifamily and commercial developments either build affordable housing units on-site or make an in-lieu payment, based on up zoning.  It has been determined this proposal is likely to have a significant adverse impact on the environment. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is required.

The EIS will consider potential impacts associated with land use, housing and socioeconomics, aesthetics and height/bulk/scale, historic resources, open space and recreation, transportation, public services, and utilities.

Agencies, affected tribes, and the public are invited to comment on the scope of the EIS impacts that are included for consideration. You may comment on alternatives, mitigation measures, probable significant adverse impacts, and licenses or other approvals that may be required.

Email comments to Geoffrey.Wentlandt@seattle.gov by 5:00 pm on September 9, 2016 for the comments to be considered.
