Seattle is revising the neighborhood plans for the areas surrounding three Link stations: “North Beacon” (Beacon Hill), “North Rainier” (Mt. Baker), and Othello. This process acquired a bit of fame when a few anti-density residents filed a last-minute appeal to obstruct the process. Within the next week, the next round of meetings will occur:
Friday, May 14, 2010
Asa Mercer Middle School
1600 S. Columbian WayNORTH RAINIER and OTHELLO
Tuesday, May 18, 2010
Filipino Community Center
5740 Martin Luther King Jr Way S.
These kinds of things could benefit from some more participants who understand the importance of density in bringing amenities to a neighborhood, in addition to the environmental imperatives.
