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:

NORTH BEACON
Friday, May 14, 2010
6:00-7:45 pm
Asa Mercer Middle School
1600 S. Columbian Way
NORTH RAINIER and OTHELLO
Tuesday, May 18, 2010
6:00-7:45 pm
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.
