In the year 2015 Seattle City Council divided into districts, with CM Rob Johnson representing Wedgwood south of NE 85th Street, and CM Deborah Juarez representing north Seattle north of 85th Street. In 2017 two other City Council “at-large” positions will be up for election.

For more than fifteen years now we have been hearing about urban villages and planning for more housing in Seattle, with Wedgwood never included in any “zoning maps” for greater density of buildings. Now the Mayor of Seattle and the City Council are proposing to bring the Housing Affordability and Livability plans into practice in the year 2017. This plan could include zoning regulations which would bring benefit to controlling what types of new buildings will come in along Wedgwood’s commercial district of 35th Ave NE.
UPDATE: The proposal was approved at City Council. A speed-limit reduction proposal was approved in committee and will advance to presentation at the full Seattle City Council on Monday, September 23rd, at 2 PM.
Plans for a new police station to be located at the southeast corner of North 130th Street and Aurora Avenue North, have been slowly grinding on since 2013. Plans hit a snag in 2016 when a dispute arose about the cost of the proposed design.
On Saturday, August 13, City Councilmember Debora Juarez will host a Party in the Park called Live in D5 for all residents of District 5, which includes Wedgwood north of NE 85th Street.
