SDCI will be launching an improved method for our customers to submit public comments for some land use and early design guidance projects. Starting in late October, customers will be able to submit a public comment online and attach supporting photos, documents, etc., using the Seattle Services Portal.
Want to let us know what you think about the 2016 Stormwater Manual? Then don’t miss our public meeting on September 30, from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m., in Seattle Municipal Tower (700 5th Ave.), room 2240. The final draft of the 2016 Stormwater Manual will be available on our website before the meeting. The Stormwater Manual is a Director’s Rule that interprets the Stormwater Code requirements. Director’s Rules are binding rules adopted according to the administration section in the Seattle Municipal Code.
The Housing Affordability and Livability Committee hosted three Community Open Houses during the months of November and December to receive community feedback early in their process. They will continue to collect community input via a survey and community feedback.
DPD is scoping an environmental impact statement (EIS) that will evaluate the City’s Comprehensive Plan update. The EIS will examine the possible impacts under three different growth scenarios. On March 24, we held a public meeting to discuss the three alternatives and to get public feedback on whether we’re looking at the right alternatives. Did you miss the meeting? DPD is holding five more meetings about the EIS planning alternatives in April. We’ll be in several communities throughout Seattle.
Thank you to all of those who took the time to comment on draft of the proposed Director’s Rule on floating residences. DPD received in excess of 65 comments, all of which are posted here.
