Welcome to the new format of the South Lake Union Community Council news! The change is indicative of our goal to bring you neighborhood relevant news in a timely manner. Instead of issuing three newsletters per year, we will post articles at least every month with this blog format. As the official stewards of the neighborhood plan, we continue to strive to engage South Lake Union stakeholders on neighborhood development issues. Please help us reach out to the community by signing up to receive email updates and by sharing this blog with a friend!
In case you missed our previous newsletters, here is what your SLU Community Council board has been working on lately:
- Improving transportation connections to and through SLU. SLUCC worked on a Mobility Plan which gave recommendations on reconnecting the street grid, increase transit service, and improve infrastructure for biking and walking.
- Providing feedback to the City on upcoming neighborhood-wide zoning changes.
- Reviewing proposed development projects and provide community feedback to developersSharing information about neighborhood events and news to engage community
And in the coming months, we encourage you to join us as we look forward to he highly-anticipated Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) scheduled to be released in April addressing topics including building heights, density and the mitigation of impacts.
We will send out more information as soon as the City of Seattle announce public meetings dates in April to review the EIS .
We hope you like our new direction and stay connected with us… Better yet, check out our discussion topics and join us at our meeting next month!
