Full Council vote on the Roosevelt Rezone (LIVE COVERAGE)

On Monday, January 30, at 2 PM, the Seattle City Council will vote on Council Bill 117379, better known as the Roosevelt Residential Urban Village rezone.

We will be watching the live stream (via the Seattle Channel) from Ravenna Blog HQ and covering the action in the space below. Readers may follow along (and make comments) during the live event, or come back later to read our notes. We will also embed the video of the meeting here once it is available.

SPOILER ALERT: The Full Council meeting agenda already includes eight of the nine Councilmembers’ votes (then Council President Conlin was absent from the December 14, 2011 Committee on the Built Environment meeting due to illness).

From the Council News Release (October 4, 2010):

SEATTLE – Councilmember Tom Rasmussen will spend several upcoming Saturdays in the community at Seattle Public Library locations, listening to residents. These informal conversations will take many different directions, with all topics on the table.

“I sincerely hope people will take advantage of this opportunity to have informal yet meaningful conversations about our City,” said Councilmember Tom Rasmussen. “I’d like to hear people’s thoughts regarding next year’s budget, transportation issues, as well as other topics relevant to Seattleites.”

This informal conversation is being held the day before Halloween. No word on whether he’ll be dressing up or not*.


*I’m guessing NOT.
