Fairness in Design Review
Open letter to Nathan Torgelson, Director SDCI:
When you read the Mission Statement of the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI), “As stewards and regulators of land and buildings, we preserve and enhance the equity, livability, safety, and health in our communities”, it is easy to see how far from your mission you have strayed. We request a meeting with you and any other decision maker with the authority to require the Design Review process be structured to represent and protect all parties’ interests.
Governor Inslee please veto HB1923 and say no to developer special interests. The bill weakens SEPA and takes away the public's right to comment.
Governor Inslee please veto HB1923 and say no to developer special interests. The bill weakens SEPA and takes away the public's right to comment. "It would be especially disappointing to see the most pro-environment presidential candidate sign a bill prioritizing special interests over the public’s ability to seek redress under his state’s signature environmental policy."
Open Letter to Mayor Durkan
I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but you really blew it on Tuesday when you were asked about your response to the KOMO News feature, “Seattle Is Dying”; and you said that the show was not representative of Seattle, that most of the city is thriving. How can you be so out of touch with reality? And show no compassion for the people suffering and dying on the streets?
