UPDATE: If your phone rings, might be City Hall about HALA; plus, Housing Levy revealed tomorrow

5:20 PM: If your phone rings at 6 pm, tonight or Thursday – here’s what it might be about:

Join us for the Mayor’s telephone town hall to talk about the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda, or HALA for short. We will be calling over 50,000 people in their homes today and Thursday, but if you want to make sure you are on the call, just call the number below. You will have a chance to ask questions and learn more about the HALA recommendations.

Tuesday, February 2nd: (855) 756-7520 Ext. 31029# at 6 p.m.

Thursday, February 4th: (855) 756-7520 Ext. 31028# at 6 p.m.

City info about HALA is here. The Morgan Community Association hosted a West Seattle-focused briefing two weeks ago; our video of that is here.

5:35 PM: In related news, the mayor’s office just announced that details of the Housing Levy renewal will be out at a noon event tomorrow. Considering that the first official community discussion of the levy is at 6:30 pm tomorrow here in West Seattle, seemed the announcement was going to have to be made by Wednesday afternoon.

    So looks like Eddie Murray thinks the “privileged homeowners” need to pay more money on top of their mortgage for rainbow crosswalks, failed city projects, and 3rd world style homeless camps.  Who does this elitist think he is fooling. VOTE NO!

     Curious if anybody in WS got a phone call.      If city and developers get there way look for much more density throughout city and residential neighborhoods. It will do little towards the affordability of living in Seattle,  do some research and also look into the 28 board people that put HALA together. It don’t take a rocket scientist to see where money will be going.  Residential homeowners, renters and tax payers that aren’t receiving the tax breaks will be paying more to make up lost revenue city direly needs. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
