Public comment opportunity (on-line and via May 16 City open house) on Mayor’s proposed increase in height of new buildings in Eastlake and other neighborhoods. Tues., May 16 open house (6-8 p.m. at historic Washington Hall, 153 14th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122) to learn about and comment on the Mayor’s proposals to increase construction and building size in Eastlake and nearby neighborhoods.
