Housing Development Consortium – Anna Markee, Outreach Director for Housing Development Consortium will discuss the work that Housing Development Consortium does for affordable housing especially workforce housing. [Workforce housing is a term used to describe housing for families who make around the median income for Seattle ($76,875 for a family of 4), but who are greatly challenged in finding a place to live in the city.]

Gibraltar Pinehurst Development at 15th Ave NE and NE 123rd (NW corner) – Kurt Fisher from Gibraltar will discuss their thoughts on the possible redevelopment of their properties in the NW corner of 15th and 123rd. Gibraltar also owns and built the San Marino building on 15th across from Safeway.

Sustainable Street Design for 115th between Roosevelt Way and 5th Ave NE – Shauna Walgren from the Neighborhood Street Fund will be presenting details of a design that integrates a sidewalk and natural drainage on 115th between Roosevelt and 5th Ave NE. The design includes swales similar to those in the Pinehurst Green Grid Drainage Project on the eastern side of Pinehurst. The swales offer drainage that more closely mimics the natural landscape prior to development than traditional piped systems. [There was an earlier blog post on this here.]

Pinehurst Planning and Development Group is a group open to all. The mission of the group is to help to make Pinehurst an even more vibrant and walkable community.
