This week at Council Chamber

Monday morning, the Council Briefing will feature an annual report presentation on the Yesler Terrace  affordable housing project.

Monday afternoon’s Full Council meeting will have the final vote on approving the sale of the Pacific Place Garage, and eleven appointments tot he Seattle Design Review Board.

This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar has two items of note:

Tuesday morning the Civil Rights. Utilities, Economic Development and Arts Committee meets, with a full agenda including:

  • a review of the Economic Development and Arts & Culture elements of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan;
  • Seattle Public Utilities’ 2015 Recycling Report;
  • an update on the plastic bag carryout ban.

Tuesday afternoon the Energy and Environment Committee meets. The agenda for the meeting has not yet been published, but I would expect it to cover the two items from last week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar:

Wednesday morning the Gender Equity, Safe Communities and New Americans Committee meets.  The agenda has not been published yet, but the aforementioned Chief of Police Audit Report is a safe bet to be on it. It will be interesting to see if any additional agenda items added relating to the horrific events of last week.

Wednesday afternoon the Human Services and Public Health Committee meets. On its not-yet-published agenda is a review of the “Community well-being” element of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan.

Thursday there is a joint meeting of the Planning, Land Use and Zoning Committee and the CRUEDA Committee to discuss equitable development.

Also on Thursday, the Select Committee on Seattle City Light Strategic Planning meets for the third (and possibly last) time to consider amendments to the proposed plan and potentially vote on the final plan.
