Protect Every Seattle Neighborhood!
A City-Wide Community Meeting
November 1, 2018 7:00-9:00 pm
Queen Anne Community Center, Room 1
1901 1st Avenue West, 98119
Seattle Neighborhood’s Urgent Call To Action – Every Neighborhood!
Mike O’Brien’s legislation is now rapidly moving forward to eliminate every single-family neighborhood and convert your property to tri-plex zoning!
The Queen Anne Community Council invites you to attend our City-Wide Community Meeting to discuss the City’s Final Environment Impact Statement (EIS) and the background behind our filing the necessary appeal. We will discuss the EIS, answer your questions, discuss next steps and hopeful outcomes, and consider ways that you can help protect your neighborhood.
While Queen Anne officially filed this appeal, we are representing you and every other Seattle neighborhood and single-family property owner. Our appeal challenges the adequacy of the EIS as it concludes that Mike O’Brien’s proposed city-wide legislation to eliminate and convert your single-family property to multi-family triplexes with no parking or ownership requirements has not even one impact.
Please share this information with neighbors and friends!
We’ll see you next Thursday

Please consider helping fund our collective city-wide appeal – here
An appeal to the Hearing Examiner is a legal proceeding that includes hundreds of exhibit reviews, evidence gathering, interviews, hearings, expert witness research and testimony, and thousands of documents to analyze. We have a big job to build our case, in accordance with Hearing Examiner requirements, and we need your help. We have engaged our attorney Jeff Eustis, who represented us in our former successful appeal outlined above. We will present our case together with a host of experts on land-use issues, real estate economics, traffic and parking, utilities and infrastructure, arborists and tree experts, neighborhood historians and others who will testify on our behalf. This kind of expertise is expensive: we are estimating now our need to raise $50,000 to credibly defend our appeal. We will seek the following determination:
