Political trouble was ‘baked into the cake’ of Seattle’s sweeping upzoning plan | The Seattle Times
The sweeping plan to upzone 27 Seattle neighborhoods to create taller, denser housing has been given the green light, and is almost certain now to sail through City Hall in March after more than a four-year fight.

But some tidbits of insider testimony from a recent challenge to the city’s Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA) plan give some clues as to why it has been such a struggle. And also why the fight won’t likely end this spring, as the city hopes.

What is Placemaking?
As both an overarching idea and a hands-on approach for improving a neighborhood, city, or region, placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community. Strengthening the connection between people and the places they share, placemaking refers to a collaborative process by which we can shape our public realm in order to maximize shared value. More than just promoting better urban design, placemaking facilitates creative patterns of use, paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place and support its ongoing evolution.

Block Power - Resilience
Nobody went to jail. No one burned down the State House or forcibly removed the President of the United States from office. What a few people on our city block on the south side of Providence decided to do instead was something more radical, if less dramatic. We tried to get our neighbours to turn to each other a little bit more for personal support. As radical – meaning ‘getting to the root’ – as this idea and subsequent project were, I later discovered that one ingredient was missing from our community-building endeavour that would make it and perhaps thousands of similar trials happening elsewhere more radical, and possibly radical enough to push the world past a tipping point on the way to just, sustainable living.
