This week in Council Chambers

This is a rare “fifth week” for the Council: half of the Council committees meet the first and third weeks of the month, and the other half meet the second and fourth weeks. So the committee schedule is very light. Still, things are happening that are worth paying attention to…

Monday morning’s Council Briefing will include an executive session with the city’s attorneys to discuss litigation-related matters. There will also be a briefing from the Office of Intergovernmental Relations on the current state legislative session. Here’s their most recent weekly bulletin on legislation in play in Olympia.

Monday afternoon’s full City Council meeting includes final votes on:

  • a one-year moratorium on redevelopment of mobile-home parks;
  •  approval of the Waterfront LID and related legislation.

This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar includes the following new pieces of legislation:

  • three appointments to the Community Surveillance Working Group;
  • the appointment of Sam Zimbabwe as Director for the Department of Transportation.

Tuesday morning there will be a special meeting of the Sustainability and Transportation Committee. Among other items, the committee will begin consideration of Sam Zimbabwe’s appointment to head SDOT.

Friday morning, there will be a joint meeting of the Sustainability and Transportation Committee and Sound Transit’s Elected Leadership Group, to continue discussion of the West Seattle and Ballard light-rail alignments.



  1. Is there a public comment portion of the joint meeting of the Sustainability and Transportation Committee / Sound Transit’s Elected Leadership Group?
