The Aurora Licton Urban Village (ALUV) has been working closely with City of Seattle staff and elected officials, including Councilmember Juarez and her team, to accelerate and enact HALA proposed zoning changes along the Aurora Avenue corridor in advance of the vote for city wide HALA changes sometime in 2018.
Councilmember Juarez will be bringing legislation forward at Monday’s (September 25, 2017) full Council meeting. If eventually passed, the legislation would put into place interim zoning controls that would encourage development that offers goods and services and building design that are more neighborhood oriented. Mixed use multifamily residential development with ground floor retail would be encouraged.
The interim zoning controls would be effective for six months, but can be renewed. The interim zooning controls will build a bridge to guide development proposals along Aurora Avenue between now and when the permanent zoning for Aurora Avenue is adopted. Link to – ALUV Interim Controls Legislation.
A favorable vote from a majority of the City Councilmembers is needed at the September 25, 2017 City Council meeting in order to refer the legislation for a vote at the Oct. 2nd Full Council meeting.
What can you do to support this legislation?
- Please email and call the other Councilmember’s offices asking them to – “Please vote yes on Councilmember Juarez’s legislation to encourage more housing and pedestrian friendly development in Aurora Licton Spring Urban Village” ahead of both the September 25, 2017 and October 2, 2017 City Council meeting. Contact information is below.
- If possible, please attend the October 2, 2017 City Council meeting and provide public comment in support of the legislation.
Thank you for your continued support and involvement.
