    It’s time. As the city council prepares to open crucial budget deliberations and the campaigns for Mayor, City Council and City Attorney approach the frenetic final month before election day, it’s time for Housing For All to formally present our demands to the city and the press.

    We need far more affordable housing. We need more and better shelter options. And we need policies that don’t criminalize people for sleeping outside or in vehicles when there is nowhere better for them to go.

    Join us at City Hall on Monday, October 2nd, as the Housing For All Coalition delivers a letter signed by over forty organizations, several candidates and other notable individuals to Seattle City Councilmembers at their 2pm Full Council Meeting. Then we’ll stop at the Mayor’s office, and finally hold a press conference on the 1st floor of City Hall. Be there at 1:30pm if you can!

    Promote improved pedestrian safety and access by evaluating and recommending changes in City design guidelines and policies;
    Prepare an annual report on the status of its work program and achievement of its goals to the Mayor and City Council.
    The Pedestrian Advisory Board also tracks implementation of the Seattle Pedestrian Master Plan, adopted by the Mayor and City Council in 2009. 

    Board meetings are on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in New City Hall on 5th Avenue between James and Cherry, Room L-280, Second Level. The public is welcome to attend.
