Use your voice to help shape HALA.

Community focus groups will have representatives from each Urban Village and will talk through some of these big HALA proposals.  This is a year long commitment and one way to give input to the City on what you think of these proposals.

Engaging through Telephone Town Halls (TTH)

The Mayor called over 70,000 home phones throughout Seattle to have a conversation about HALA.

79% of callers had not participated in a City led meeting in the last 5 years. TTH's are a successful tool for reaching new community voices.

It is an essential tool for helping those most in need of housing in our community. 

The Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda community engagement is in full swing.  Keep informed and bring your voice to these many conversations.
