This week in Council Chambers

It’s a holiday week, so the normal Council schedule is shifted around a bit. Nevertheless, three committees meet for the first time this week.

With the MLK Day holiday, the usual Monday meetings are shifted to Tuesday, and the committee meetings usually held on Tuesday shift to Friday.

Tuesday morning’s Council Briefing has no special presentations or executive sessions on the agenda.

Tuesday afternoon’s full City Council meeting has three items on the agenda for final votes:

  • Two resolutions related to foreign affairs: one denouncing the Trump administration’s excalation of conflict with Iran, and the other opposing India’s new citizenship law.
  • A resolution tweaking a few of the recently-approved regional and local committee appointments for the Council members.

This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar only has one item: the above-mentioned resolution on committee appointments.

Wednesday afternoon the Select Committee on Homelessness Strategies and Investments meets. It has one item on the agenda: a bill proposing to expand the number of permitted “tiny home” villages and sanctioned encampments in the city and allowing for longer permitting for them.

Thursday evening at 6pm, the Sustainability and Renters’ Rights Committee meets. It will up the proposed ban on “winter evictions.”

Friday afternoon, the Community Economic Development Committee meets. The agenda for the meeting has not yet been published.



  1. Re: regional committees – I haven’t done a deep comparison but I do note that Alex Pedersen has replaced Deborah Juarez on the Move Seattle Oversight Committee. Are there other changes to note?

    1. From the summary and fiscal note: “update the assignment to the Move Seattle Levy Oversight Committee to be consistent with Ordinance 124796, adds an assignment for the King County Affordable Housing Committee (AHC) of the Growth Management Planning Council (GMPC), and removes an assignment to the Trade Development Alliance because it is no longer meeting.”
