As discussed at our January HPAC meeting, Mayor Ed Murray plans to hold a Seattle Neighborhood Summit to improve how the city works with neighborhoods and community leaders. Some of the themes that will be used to drive the summit’s discussions include calls for commitment, action and ongoing conversation
Summit planners say this is the first step in what they hope to be an ongoing relationship aimed at rebuilding the trust between the City and neighborhoods. In addition to holding this traditional forum, they plan to use social media and technology so more can participate whether or not they are able to attend.
The Seattle Neighborhood Summit will be held on Saturday, April 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Seattle Center’s Pavilion Room. The Mayor’s Office has also launched a website to collect public input between now and the Summit, which can be found here.
