The event will feature open house-style information to allow dialogue and education around major policy efforts in Seattle. Neighbors can speak with City staff from the Department of Neighborhoods, Seattle’s Department of Transportation and the Department of Planning and Development. We are exploring a proactive and conversational model of community engagement to hear directly from the community and share ideas. This is the first of several discussions we’ll have throughout Seattle.
