City of Seattle has won a Judges Merit Award for its innovative civic engagement efforts for Neighborhood Planning Updates and Status Check. Gov. Chris Gregoire announced the winners of her 2010 Smart Communities Awards for creating livable communities in Washington State.
Updating the Rainier Beach and Broadview, Bitterlake, Haller Lake neighborhood plans is now underway.
If you are Interested in serving on the local Neighborhood Advisory Committee for these two neighborhoods, visit this website for more information:
In 2009 over 1,500 people helped plan the future of their neighborhoods in North Beacon, North Rainier and Othello. Now it’s time to get things done. Come help prioritize next steps and sign up for project action teams.
During June and July, many neighbors joined in meetings and many other hundreds participated in on line questionnaires to review the Draft Neighborhood Status Reports and comment on changes— good, bad, and unexpected —that have occurred since Seattle’s Neighborhood Plans were written in the late 90’s. … The Neighborhood Plan Advisory Committee (NPAC) and the Seattle Planning Commission want to report back to you on the trends that emerged so far and to get your help to identify the continuing priorities and new issues that should be emphasized in the final Status Reports and a State of the Neighborhood Report that will be presented to the City Council and Mayor.
Come help us shape the future of your neighborhood by commenting on proposed strategies to address your community’s growth, transportation, and quality of life.
The Seattle Planning Commission and Neighborhood Planning Advisory Committee want your feedback about the status of your neighborhood plan and the changes that have occurred since your plan was adopted. We’ve set up a “virtual meeting” on the Seattle Planning Commission’s website where you can follow three simple steps to provide feedback about your neighborhood: www.seattle.gov/planningcommission/.
