What goes into making a neighborhood great and keeping it that way? With a proposed upzone in Seattle's South Lake Union and other neighborhoods and lingering debate over past decisions, land-use issues are a popular and potentially polarizing topic these days. What lessons can be learned from past efforts and how are citizen voices being heard in the process? How should policy makers balance issues such as economic development, open space, densification, long-term growth, and neighborhood desires while keeping Seattle Seattle? Seattle Channel host Brian Callanan will lead a live televised discussion featuring Seattle City Councilmember Richard Conlin, Vulcan’s Vice President of Real Estate Development Ada M. Healey, Department of Planning and Development Director Diane Sugimura, Fremont Neighborhood Council activist Toby Thaler and other leaders, critics and stakeholders including YOU! Join us either at Town Hall or online, where you can take part in the polls and voice your opinion via social media and e-mail. Presented in Partnership by CityClub, Seattle Channel and Town Hall Seattle.
