Seattle Planning Commission to visit Delridge for its next meeting

The Seattle Planning Commission is the most influential advisory group you’ve (probably) never heard of. Its discussions look at policies and proposals long before they hit centerstage. One example: The commission’s Neighborhoods For All report, which suggests an end to single-family zoning. The commission’s next meeting will be held in North Delridge, 4 pm October 10th at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, centered on a discussion with east West Seattle community groups. From the draft agenda:

Discussion with Community and Neighborhood Organizations 4:30 – 5:20 PM

Representatives of community and neighborhood organizations will introduce themselves and share their organization’s respective mission, issues, projects, and concerns. Organizations include:

• Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association
• Delridge Neighborhoods District Council
• Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council
• Puget Ridge Neighborhood Council
• High Point Community
• LD Arch Design

That’ll be followed by a public-comment period. The meeting will be held in the Movement Studio at Youngstown (4408 Delridge Way SW) and is open to all.

    Sorry what’s the meeting time? Agenda says 4:30, article says 4pm, Commission web calendar says 3-5:30, not even noted they are coming to Delridge?

      The meeting starts at 4. The 4:30 neighborhood discussion is just an agenda excerpt. Sorry, I should have also included the PDF of the entire agenda. Will upload and add here and above momentarily. As for their website, looks like they just failed to update the standing listing – TR

      (added) Here’s the “draft agenda” – as sent out to the commission’s mailing list, which we joined a while back.

    Where is the voice for South Delridge? Always amazes me that the city, city departments and city officials fail to include the South Delridge Neighborhood!!!  The Delridge Corridor MUST be viewed in its totality- from the West Seattle Bridge to the Seattle city limit of Roxbury St.  The SW Delridge Corridor is 6 miles long- it would be much appreciated to acknowledge and include the southern 3.7 mile stretch!

      Considering that the HPAC meeting is where I first heard about this, it’s interesting that they’re not on the list, could be an omisson, but if I were you or somebody else from the HPAC constellation, I’d just show up and take a seat at the table!

    Sure not clear what this meeting’s purpose is. Or who should attend. The time is not for folks who work. Is that why there is only 10 minutes for public comment? If its just for Delridge area groups why is High Point on the panel?

    Also remarkable is that LD Arch Design is a private endeavor that may be active in the community as are others but  not usually recognized as a representative of community and neighborhood organizations.

    IMO, the elimination of single-family zoning is a huge mistake. It is nothing more than yet another gift to developers.  Forcing anyone who wants a modicum of privacy or peace and quiet to be driven to the suburbs creates sprawl, and helps no one.  It destroys neighborhoods, and by extension, community.  A very short-sighted approach.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
