Third HALA MHA Workshop for Community Leaders and Activists - Legislative and Legal Processes

April 8 – Neighborhoods Workshop on HALA Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA) Upzones -- the Legislative and Legal Processes

The Seattle Neighborhood Coalition, in conjuction with the City Neighborhood Council's Planning and Land Use Committee, is hosting a workshop on Saturday April 8 for community organizers who are trying to bring attention to HALA’s Mandatory Housing Affordability upzones and to more effectively enage in the legilslative process.

We will have a number of presenters and Q&A covering:

  •  How are zoning and land use and the development process defined in the Seattle Municipal Code
  •  What are the roles of the administration (the Mayor and departments) and Council in the legislative process
  •  How to effectively lobby the administration, departments and Council
  •  How does the State Environmental Protection Act (SEPA) and Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) work in the zoning and development processes
  •  What are land use appeals and interpretations and how are they used
  •  How do Public Records requests work and what can they tell us?
  •  How do you track what is happening in the legislative process

Some neighborhoods are well organized and have a variety of responses to working with the City, others are just getting started, and others are not engaged. This workshop will allow community members an initial chance to “become aware and share” and meet with other neighborhood leaders to make connections.

We want to empower communities to make their own choices on how to respond and understand what is happening related to the zoning changes that will affect them.

If you are interested in helping your community respond to the upzones and become more engaged in the process, please join us.

*** NOTE:  the meeting will start at 9am with networking and breakfast (which costs $14 and also helps cover the cost of the room).  Presentations willl start at 9:30am.
