Sally Clark Opinion Piece on Townhomes
The Seattle Times is running an opinion piece on townhomes written by Sally J. Clark, chair of the Seattle City Council’s Planning, Land Use and Neighborhoods Committee, Town homes: We can do better:
When I talk to the developers who build town homes, they, like the unhappy neighborhoods, also have common themes: They do what the land-use code makes them do; they don’t have buckets of money to try different designs; and when they find a design that meets the requirements spelled out in Seattle land-use code, they use it — over and over again.
Reminder that you can participate in this conversation this Saturday at the Capitol Hill Arts Center from 10 AM to noon.
The Seattle PI also has an article today on townhomes, Townhomes don’t have to be ugly featuring an info graphic with the Portland designs:
