Envisioning Seattle's Residential Future

Hosted by Capitol Hill Renter Initiative

"Join us on August 8th to come learn about new policies proposed to create more housing opportunities in our neighborhoods!

Matt Hutchins from CAST Architecture and More Options for Accessory Dwelling Units (MOAR!) will be presenting on the proposed changes to both Residential Small Lot zoning and rules to increase the amount of backyard cottage/mother-in-law apartments, followed by time for questions and lively discussion.

If you'd like to learn more about the policies that can address our housing affordability crisis, or are just already interested in land use/zoning in Seattle, join us to discuss ways to create more housing in residential areas.

Seattle is set to rezone thousands of residential lots as Residential Small Lot as part of ongoing zoning changes. The rules covering RSL have been totally rewritten and there are many questions about how this new zone will function.

First, what is RSL and what's possible under RSL in practice under the rewritten code vs the old? What kinds of new housing are we likely to see, and does it allow the kinds of dwellings we need to address the housing crisis? Tandem Cottages? Traditional fourplexes? Bungalow courts?

We'll be in the Pike/Pine room of the 12th Ave Arts building (upstairs and in the main room to the right). Drinks, snacks, and banh mi will be provided."
