CITY COUNCIL TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARING ON AFFORDABLE HOUSING IMPACT MITIGATION PROGRAM FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT

The Seattle City Councilís Select Committee on Housing Affordability will hold a public hearing to take comments on the proposal on Wednesday September 30th at 5:30 p.m. at City Council Chambers, 2nd floor, Seattle City Hall at 600 4th Ave.

The City Council is considering a proposed ordinance that would add a new Chapter 23.58B to the Land Use Code and make other amendments. Chapter 23.58B would establish a framework for an Affordable Housing Impact Mitigation Program to partially mitigate the impacts of commercial development on the need for affordable housing.

It would also amend the State Environmental Policy Act ordinance, SMC Section 25.05.675, to adopt environmental policies to help mitigate the need for affordable housing caused by commercial development, and amend Section 23.76.006 to address procedures for certain Program decisions.

For more information on the time of the hearing, please check the Committee agenda online a few days prior to the meeting. For those who wish to testify, a sign-up sheet will be available outside the Council Chamber one-half hour before the public hearing.
