This week in Council Chambers

With the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, things are shifted around a bit…

The usual Monday Council Briefing and Full Council meetings will be held on Tuesday. There are no presentations on the agenda for the Council Briefing. The Full Council meeting will also be light, with several routine pieces of business and the only notable item being a resolution supporting the city’s bid to host the 2026 World Cup.

This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar is equally light. However, expect a last-minute addition of a resolution establishing the Council members’ memberships on external commissions.

Wednesday morning, the Planning, Land Use and Zoning Committee meets. On its agenda are:

  • a change to the effective date for some of the changes made to the city’s Design Review process last year;
  • an appeal of a contract rezone in South Lake Union;
  • Directors Reports for the Office of Planning and Community Development and the Department of Construction and Inspections;
  • continuation of deliberations on proposed changes to the city’s off-street parking regulations.

Wednesday afternoon, the Civic Development, Public Assets, and Native Communities Committee meets. It will continue its deliberations on the proposed expansion, redevelopment and 55-year lease of the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park.

Thursday morning is the second meeting of the Progressive Revenue Task Force.

Thursday afternoon, the Housing, Health, Energy and Workers’ Rights Committee meetings. Friday morning, the Governance, Equity and Technology Committee meets. Friday afternoon, the Sustainability and Technology Committee meets. The agendas for these three meetings have not been published yet.
