Let City Council Hear Your Voice:
Cancel Big, Profit-Driven Upzones if
Developers and Lobbyists
Block Affordable Housing!
Call to Action: Before it's too late, voice your support for Councilmember Lisa Herbold's amendments to the gigantic U District upzone -- including the compassionate "clawback" to cancel the upzone if developers refuse to provide affordable housing. To learn more about Lisa's helpful amendments, CLICK HERE.
Unfortunately, our Northeast Councilmember Rob Johnson is plunging ahead at the urging of lobbyists to cement this ill-conceived, poorly planned overhaul of our neighborhoods that must be fixed. Without sufficient notice, Johnson played a last-minute game of "Monopoly" and "Risk" with our neighborhoods by engulfing several blocks into the upzone scheme -- jeopardizing nearly 200 units of existing affordable housing. This U District upzone is poised to create the mold for future changes in Northeast Seattle neighborhoods from Wallingford to Wedgwood and throughout our City. The Council needs to hear from you now!
