Neighborhood Plan Status Report Meeting — in person!

(preamble: YES I did encourage you to submit your thoughts online, and YES, many of us did do so, but the City has relented and offered us an in-person make-up session, to make up for the very slim attendance at the earlier meetings. The City is promoting the meeting for the Central Area, which includes Madison-Miller, but will bring left-over handouts for the nearby areas: Capitol Hill, Pike-Pine, 12th Avenue. Should be a good chance to discuss ideas of joint interest.

BTW: note that after the meeting we can all retire to the nearby Bottleneck Lounge to celebrate their expansion and continue the discussion.)

Miller Community Center, 330 19th Ave. E 98112, 6 - 8 PM, Thursday, September 3rd.
Please join members of the Seattle Planning Commission and the Neighborhood Planning Advisory Committee on for an important community meeting.
These two citizen groups want to hear your thoughts. Come and tell us how the Central Area, Pike/Pine and Capitol Hill has changed since the creation of their Neighborhood Plans. Your comments and input at this meeting will help the City of Seattle complete a status report that will look at how well your neighborhood plan is achieving its goals and strategies.
This meeting will provide an opportunity to learn about your neighborhood plan, the projects that have been implemented, and growth and changes that have occurred since your plan was written in the late 90's. We will explore issues such as growth, transportation, housing, economic development , basic utilities, neighborhood character, open space and parks, public services, public safety, and other issues.
It would also be helpful to know your Neighborhood Plan and to bring it with you, so you can reference to them when needed. So, here are the links to your Neighborhood Plans:

Shopping & amenities map

A couple of sets of visitors, in different parts of Capitol Hill, inspired me to make this Google map. I invite you to add to it. I think you'll need to be signed in to your Google account to edit/add to the map.
