Here are the Seattle OPCD and SDCI Land Use notices and City planning activities in the last three weeks for communities from 18th Ave. to Lake Washington and E Union St. to SR-520.
Central Area Design Guidelines Open House
The Central Area Design Guidelines Coalition (CA DGC) has been working with the City of Seattle and local architects Schemata Workshop and Mimar Studio to outline a set of neighborhood specific guidelines for future development in the Central Area. Guidelines are intended to address how new buildings support and enhance the character of the existing community fabric. They define the qualities of architecture, urban design, and public space that are used by the City of Seattle Design Review Program. Come help celebrate the hard work done by this community and team of partners to create neighborhood specific design guidelines. The final document from Schemata Workshop and Mimar Studio is complete. Come check it out!

Proposed Neighborhood Parking Reforms
Legislation is being prepared (and attached to the notice) to update parking regulations, including how ‘frequent transit’ is measured, expanding access to off street parking by introducing a new ‘flexible-use parking’ category and allowing park and ride use in garages in certain areas, unbundling parking spaces from units in multifamily housing, and other changes to parking requirements. The SDCI Director has determined that the changes will have no probable significant environmental impact, which is a step in the process before the legislation is introduced to Council.
