On September 11, the Seattle City Council Planning, Land Use and Zoning Committee will hold a public hearing on proposed legislation to change the City’s design review process. The proposal would:
- Require early community outreach by the project applicant before starting the design review process
- Change the thresholds that determine if design review is required to apply uniformly based on the total square footage in a building instead of dwelling unit counts, use, and zone
- Establish new thresholds to determine the type of design review required based on site and project characteristics
- Allow affordable housing projects that receive public funding or an allocation of federal low-income housing tax credits to go through an administrative design review process
The proposal would also make additional changes to design review process.
