City of Seattle: Close Land-Use Loopholes in City Codes

Backyard houses destroy habitat and tree cover. They block sunlight for people and gardens. Privacy is eroded or eliminated. Noise level increases. These houses can pit neighbor against neighbor when one profits from the sale of a lot or an easement while the other loses privacy, sunlight, quiet. "Single family neighborhood" should mean one house on an existing lot. Please stop backyard houses.
