Ray Dubicki writes in The Urbanist:
"From now until March 2nd, Seattle is taking comments on a proposal to change the zoning rules in the city’s industrial zones. Based on the work of the former mayor’s Industrial and Maritime Strategy group, the changes will address evolving manufacturing and maritime industries while protecting the lands from being gobbled up by big box stores and other commercial uses. As we have covered, you should comment on Environmental Impact Statements because that’s where the city considers the widest array of options before making a decision.
The idea to rezone the city’s industrial lands is a good one. The specifics will be better once fine tuned. The underlying justification needs a lot of help. The Environmental Impact Statement must struggle with the racialized history that formed our industrial areas in the first place."
Please take action by March 2nd. Email PCD_Industry_and_Maritime@Seattle.gov or via the questionnaire in the Summary Story Map using this link: HERE.
