Architects, builders and designers to present best and worst in low-rise projects Council to review renderings as part of decision-making process on Multifamily Code update

SEATTLE - In an effort to understand what is possible to build, both good and bad, under the proposed changes to the Multifamily code dictating low-rise housing rules, the Planning, Land Use and Neighborhoods Committee will hold a special meeting Thursday, Sept. 24, including a guided tour of low-rise renderings.

The meeting begins at 4 p.m. Three different teams of architects and designers will lead the Council through the drawings hung in Chambers, explaining all the possibilities for low-rise projects based on proposed amendments before the Council.

Following the guided discussion, Councilmembers will engage in a more in-depth conversation about what should be changed and/or preserved in the proposed Multifamily Code Update.

The public is encouraged to attend this meeting and see for themselves what the proposed changes could mean to low-rise housing in the city.

Council meetings are cablecast live on Seattle Channel 21 and Webcast live on the City Councils website at Copies of legislation, archives of previous meetings, and news releases are available on Questions about Council news releases can be directed to Debra Carnes, Council Communications, at 206-684-8159, or by e-mail at
