Neighborly Announcements: Pike/Pine Overlay Public Meeting and a Historic Preservation Workshop

A reminder to anyone who's following the Pike/Pine Overlay (i.e. conservation district) developments: There will be a public meeting discussing the project on Tuesday, October 14th. The meeting will be held at SCCC in room BE 1110 at 5:30pm. It should be interesting because I believe they'll be presenting the conservation district legislation in a more final form - I've only seen/ heard of a draft so far.

And now, a message from Historic Seattle:

Disturbed by insensitive new construction in your neighborhood?

Struggling to understand Seattle's historic preservation ordinance?

Seeking procedures for dealing with local historic properties?

Who is on the landmarks board anyway?

Historic Seattle will provide the answers to these questions and more at a full-day workshop featuring presentations by local historic preservation experts. Advance reservations are required! Workshop fees are $25 for Historic Seattle members and $30 for the general public. Please call 206/622-6952 to register or for more information. You can also register online at

Workshop participants will enjoy a lunch delivered to the Good Shepherd Center and receive an extensive packet of useful information about local, state, and national preservation issues and opportunities.
