Looking back on the Roosevelt Rezone Process

Remember the Roosevelt Rezone?  It wasn’t so long ago, in January of 2012, that the neighborhood next door was “upzoned.”  No matter how you feel about the results, no one seems to argue that the process of incorporating a community’s input is lacking.

The Seattle Channel’s Brian Callahan tried to piece together what our City may have learned not just from the Roosevelt Rezone, but also from development in Rainier Valley and South Lake Union.   You can watch the “Seattle Speaks” talk show here, and see if you think any lessons were learned from what happened to our buddies on the other side of 15th.  And, remember, downtown Ravenna does not have a neighborhood plan, but we’re within a one-mile radius of the soon to be light-rail station on NE 65th and 12th NE.
