This week: you could hear a pin drop

It’s going to be a very quiet week in Council Chambers, except for Tuesday.

Due to lack of a quorum, the Council has cancelled both of its regularly scheduled Monday meetings: the morning Council Briefing and the afternoon Full Council meeting.

Tuesday morning the Planning, Land Use and Zoning Committee meets. It will resume discussion of three items from last week’s meeting:

  • An update to the Environmentally Critical Areas regulation, including a required public hearing;
  • An update to the MHA-Commercial ordinance to align it better with the MHA-Residential ordinance;
  • The proposed rezone of the University District.

The PLUZ committee will also consider the nomination of David Goldberg to the Seattle Planning Commission.

Tuesday afternoon, the Sustainability and Transportation Committee meets. On its agenda:

  • Two approvals of surplus property to be sold off in South Lake Union (here and here);
  • An ordinance update to clarify rules related to the Play Street program;
  • A request for an alley vacation (or the 40 feet that remains of one) for Seattle University to expand and renovate a playfield;
  • Final approval of an alley vacation that was conditionally granted in 2012 for development of Amazon’s LSU campus;
  • A briefing on the update to the Pedestrian Master Plan that is in the works.

Wednesday’s regularly scheduled meetings of the Affordable Housing, Neighborhoods and Finance Committee and the Education, Equity and Governance Committee have been cancelled.
