The power of community engagement in urban design
The Power of Community Engagement in Design of our Urban Fabric

The general public is concerned about population growth, transformation of our urban fabric, and community identity. There are questions about equity, access to affordable housing for families, access to adequate public transportation, and access to jobs. Sam Assefa, Director of Seattle's Office of Planning & Community Development (OPCD), discusses the City's approach to neighborhood planning, issues of density, zoning, and land use, and impacts of the Housing Affordability & Livability Agenda (HALA) as recommendations are incorporated into neighborhood upzones across the city. This AIA Seattle Diversity Roundtable program includes a question and answer session where attendees can ask questions about issues that affect their neighborhoods and the communities in which they live and work.  Presented by: AIA Seattle Diversity Roundtable
