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.
Lake City’s Future First project has brought a new zoning plan and there will be new developments built.
Wedgwood’s neighbor to the north, Lake City, has an alliance of businesses and community groups and they have launched a new webpage this week.
