Our September meeting minutes have been approved. Find them below the break.
Dear Beacon Hill neighbors,
At our September 12, 2017 Beacon Hill Council community meeting, a group of neighbors made a presentation about a proposal for a 4-story, 40+ unit building at 1807 13th Ave S. across the street from the Beacon Hill Playground and Beacon Hill International School. There is currently a 4-unit apartment building on the site. The "micro-apartments” in the proposed building are to be approximately 240 sq. ft. each with no parking provided. All the residents in the current building would be displaced.
The presenters shared an information flyer and petition to compel the Seattle Department of Construction (DCI) and Inspections about this project before allowing it to proceed. Without a forum, our Beacon Hill community voices cannot be heard.
To date, over 240 people have signed a petition asking the City of Seattle and the developer to reconsider this project and approximately 20 neighbors have written protesting the permitting of the project. You can view the submitted documents for the proposal and the letters at http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/toolsresources/Map/detail/default.htm?lat=47.58668656&lon=-122.31634157&addr=1807,,,13TH,AVE,S under the “Documents” tab.
Our community attendees voted for our Beacon Hill Council Board to: 1) write a letter to Seattle DCI in support of a public meeting on the proposed development and 2) to have us share the petition and flyer with our members via email and website.
We are implementing the will of our community by informing you of this issue and attaching the flyer and the petition. (please see below) Please review this information and fully consider writing a letter and/or signing the petition. Should you have any questions, please contact Beacon Hill Neighbor Kristyn Joy firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 327-0324. Thank you.

Beacon Hill Air & Noise Pollution Health Problems, last chance for community input (English, Span, Viet, Chinese, Cantonese)
This is part of a 2-year project to alert residents to air and noise pollution health problems in our beloved Beacon Hill. Community meetings have been held June - Sept 2017. These are the last of the meetings. Come to our community meetings to learn more and help create our community action plan. In October 2017, community members will prioritize recommended actions that will protect or improve the health of Beacon Hill residents. In 2018, at least two actions will be implemented. Your awareness and input are important to address this important health issue.
Join us on the 1st Tuesday of the month for our general meeting.
All of our meetings occur at the Jefferson Community Center. Review our location page for details.
