How the New Design Review Process Works and Potential Displacement of Downtown Greenwood Businesses
Greenwood Community Council September Meeting 7PM, Tuesday September 18, 2018 Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.
The Community Council has settled on three projects to focus on this fall. One is our annual Election Forum in October. The other two are the subject of this month’s membership meeting (below, after the video)…
The New Design Review Process: Seattle has implemented a revised Design Review process that now requires developers to conduct early community outreach before they can schedule design guidance meetings with City staff. The Greenwood Community Council is well positioned to add value and quality to this new outreach requirement but also requires volunteers to track, host, coordinate, participate, and respond to community outreach request from developers. We will take a quick look at the overall design review process and identify volunteer opportunities to help us prepare for more engagement with developers.
