On February 8, from 5:30 to 7:00, the City of Seattle Department of Planning and Development will host a community celebration marking completion of the South Lake Union Urban Design Framework (UDF). Created in collaboration with a cross section of community stakeholders, the UDF sets out a community vision for the physical development of the South Lake Union neighborhood. UDF recommendations range from specific actions, such as creating a new community center at Denny Park, to broader strategies, like using building form and land use controls to make an active and inviting lakefront.
Seattle DPD is planning an open house event for the West Seattle Triangle Project. The open house will take place on December 2 between 6:00 and 8:00 PM at the West Seattle Senior Center. All are invited. The open house will present information about the West Seattle Triangle planning project including project outcomes and community process to date.
The City of Seattle invites the public to an open house to learn how the City is increasing Seattle’s tree canopy. The City has proposed regulations that will increase tree canopy, provide flexibility for homeowners, and help preserve Seattle’s trees. A tree credit requirement in single-family zones will help preserve existing trees and encourage planting new trees. Expanding Seattle Green Factor landscape standards and simplifying the process for departures to some rules will provide incentives to protect trees during development.
An Urban Forestry Open House is scheduled for Tuesday, September 21st at City Hall. The open house will provide an opportunity for people to hear about the many City efforts underway to expand and enhance Seattle’s urban forest, including proposals that would revise regulations for cutting and planting trees on private property.
