A NEW ARTS DISTRICT FOR SEATTLE?
Councilmembers to hear recommendations from citizen advisory committee

SEATTLE On Wednesday, September 24th, at 2 p.m., Councilmembers will hold a joint committee meeting to hear preliminary recommendations from the Cultural Overlay District Advisory Committee (CODAC) formed by the Council over the summer. The group, representing the arts, property owners, and developers, has been studying the creation of a cultural overlay district, which as a land-use designation would provide incentives and regulations intended to promote and preserve arts in certain Seattle neighborhoods.

The joint committee is comprised of the Culture, Civil Rights, Health and Personnel Committee, chaired by CODAC sponsor and Councilmember Nick Licata, and the Planning, Land Use and Neighborhoods Committee, chaired by Councilmember and CODAC co-sponsor Sally Clark. It will be held on the 2nd floor of City Hall, 600 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle, in Council Chambers.

The work of CODAC coincides with the work Councilmember Tom Rasmussen is pursuing in the Pike/Pine corridor of Capitol Hill addressing concerns over the loss of neighborhood character in the Pike/Pine area of Capitol Hill due to rapid redevelopment.
