Mayor sets date for ‘Seattle Neighborhood Summit’: April 5th

Mayor Ed Murray promised he would hold a “Neighborhood Summit” within 100 days of taking office – and today he’s announced the place and date: 9 am-1 pm Saturday, April 5th, in the Pavilion Room at Seattle Center. From the announcement:

Summit planners say this is the first step in what they hope to be an ongoing relationship aimed at rebuilding the trust between the City and neighborhoods. In addition to holding this traditional forum, they plan to use social media and technology so more can participate whether or not they are able to attend.

That part of the effort starts now – with this new city website. It includes a survey to which you can respond right now; go here.

    Sounds like this might be the forum for voicing opinions about parking issues and height zoning rules.

    I would have given him 200 days to arrange actually coming INTO our neighborhood.

    Completed the survey! I liked that it allowed you to rank what issues are important in our community…which I’m pretty sure every west seattlitie can agree on right now. :p

    I hope other people complete it!

    Hopefully Murray will break the stranglehold that city staffers have on some of the community councils. Broad participation from neighborhoods is preferable to “local” decisions being driven by a handful of paid City staffers who happen to live in a neighborhood. It starts to look like a petty ward system for a clique of employees trying to keep their bacon after a while…

    I filled it out too. The truth is going to hurt when they read mine :)

    Completed the survey! Thanks for posting the link-this is important!

Sorry, comment time is over.
