The Power of Community Engagement in Design of our Urban Fabric
This event is a program of the 2017 Seattle Design Festival. For more information on the festival and other programming related to this year’s theme of POWER, go to: designinpublic.org
The general public is concerned about population growth, transformation of our urban fabric, and community identity. There are questions about equity, access to affordable housing for families, access to adequate public transportation, and access to jobs. Sam Assefa, Director of Seattle’s Office of Planning & Community Development (OPCD), will discuss the City’s approach to neighborhood planning, issues of density, zoning, and land use, and impacts of the Housing Affordability & Livability Agenda (HALA) as recommendations are incorporated into neighborhood upzones across the city. The program will include a question and answer session where attendees can ask questions about issues that affect their neighborhoods and the communities in which they live and work.
RSVP by Friday, September 8.
