Councilmember Sally J. Clark
Public Hearings on MegaHouses and Comprehensive Plan Amendments
SEATTLE — Councilmember Sally J. Clark announced today that the Planning, Land Use and Neighborhoods Committee will hold two public hearings on Monday, September 22, 5:30 p.m. on MegaHouses and Comprehensive Plan Amendments.
The first public hearing will be on new legislation that addresses Seattle residents concerns about MegaHouses— out-of-scale, out-of-character houses seemingly plunked into neighborhoods, overshadowing houses around them.
The second public hearing, beginning at the conclusion of the first one, regards proposed amendments to Seattle’s Comprehensive Plan. The Comp Plan articulates a vision for how the city will accommodate residential and employment growth over the next 20 years. The Council received and drafted proposed Comprehensive Plan amendments since in January. Department of Planning & Development staff has analyzed the proposed changes. Public comment on Monday will help councilmembers understand the intent behind the various proposals.
Speakers can sign up starting at 5 p.m. outside Council Chambers. Comments will be held to two minutes per Comp Plan amendment proposed with a maximum time limit of 10 minutes. Details of proposed legislation can be found at www.seattle.gov/council/clark.
