Followup: City Council public hearing set for proposed microhousing rules

Back on Friday, we reported on the official debut of the city’s proposed rules for (including a definition of) microhousing, when the legislation showed up on the City Council’s Introduction and Referral Calendar. Today, another online city publication, the Land Use Information Bulletin, brings news of the public hearing required before a vote can be held: 5:30 pm Monday, May 19th, in the City Council chambers at City Hall downtown. Here’s the hearing notice, including a summary of the proposed rules (which you can read in full here) and details on how to comment if you can’t make it to the hearing. The rules would not affect any of the projects already making their way through the city system. (WSB photo: First West Seattle microhousing project to open, Footprint Delridge)

    I know this may not be relevant to the meeting, but would there be a way to ask the city to consider requiring developers to move existing houses to other lots and donate them to Habitat for Humanity instead of letting them be demolished?

Sorry, comment time is over.
