Things are happening. The beating hearts of the Central Area along 23rd Avenue—at Union, Cherry and Jackson—are where people gather, shop, work, go to school, worship and live … and they are changing. This great neighborhood is full of history, character, shops, organizations, schools and most importantly a community of people from a diversity of backgrounds. It is time to come together to identify key priorities for these three community cores—to honor its history and shape its future.
If you live on a steep slope or landslide-prone area, the City of Seattle encourages you to come to our free landslide awareness meeting on November 10.
DPD generally supports and encourages infill development when consistent with the City’s Comprehensive Plan goals and policies. DPD recently reviewed the Land Use Code provisions that regulate undersized lots and minimum lot area exceptions. DPD determined that development approved under current standards is often out of character with the surrounding neighborhood and inconsistent with policy. Interim measures were put in place to prevent additional permits on these small lots while this issue is being studied.
Did you know that most landslides occur between the months of October and April? And that 86 percent of landslides are caused to some extent by human activity? Landslide season is upon us and although the Seattle rainfall is currently below the landslide threshold, the City of Seattle is urging residents to take preventive measures to protect themselves and their property from possible landslides.
If you live on a steep slope or landslide-prone area, the City of Seattle encourages you to come out to one of two free landslide awareness meetings.
You will have the opportunity to consult with public and private landslide experts and learn how to protect yourself from landslides by using simple preventive measures.

To reduce risks of childhood lead poisoning, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issues the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. This rule requires property management companies, landlords, contractors, renovators, and painters to take safety measures when working with lead paint.
