The Central Area community has shown great passion through different stages and levels of engagement for the 23rd Avenue Action Plan that focuses on the community cores at Union, Cherry, and Jackson along 23rd Avenue. From early February to April, we started the project conversation by hosting 5 stakeholder group meetings and attending 9 meetings held by different community organizations.
The Rental Registration and Inspection Ordinance requires landlords to register all rental housing units in Seattle, from single family homes to large apartment buildings. Registration will begin in early 2014 with large apartment buildings. We are committed to working with a broad range of stakeholders to ensure that the RRIO program implements Council direction and also reflects the needs and interests of the community. Our meeting on May 9 (at 2PM) will discuss the weighted checklist.
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.
