Morgan Junction Community Meeting will look at zoning for HALA

The Morgan Junction Community (MoCA) meeting coming up on Oct 19. Organizer hope to have the map for Morgan Junction which will show the initial suggestion for zoning changes on all property inside the Morgan Junction Urban Village boundary.

The suggested changes are the first round of zoning change discussions being led by the Seattle Office of Planning and Community Development. These changes are being made as part of the proposed Mandatory Housing Affordability initiative which is part of the Mayors Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA). These are for review but there will be a formal “Open House” scheduled later this fall to collect community input.

If you own property inside the Morgan Junction Urban Village, your land is proposed to be rezoned. Come to the meeting for more details, or watch for the posting of the maps and additional information on the City’s HALA page at
