The City Council will be holding public meetings to discuss proposed changes to the Living Building Pilot Project (LBPP). The changes, authored by the Seattle Department of Planning & Development, would extend the life of the program beyond the end of the year and add needed flexibility to encourage development of more deep green buildings, like Stone34. Public Hearing, July 9, 5pm, City Hall, 2nd floor. FNC has not taken a position on these program changes but does support Stone34. You can send a letter of support to City Council Members directly. Land Use Committee members are Richard Conlin, Chair <Richard.firstname.lastname@example.org> (206-684-8805) ; Tim Burgess, Vice Chair <email@example.com> (206-684-8806); Mike O’Brien <firstname.lastname@example.org> (206-684-8800), Sally Clark <email@example.com> (206-684-8802); or email all council members at <firstname.lastname@example.org> Live addresses here: http://www.seattle.gov/council/councilcontact.htm

Stone34 needs supporters at all of these meetings to tell the Council they should approve the recommended changes to the LBPP. Meetings begin with a public comment period where anyone wishing to speak (for no more than 2 minutes) is asked to sign in prior to the start of the meeting. Speakers are advised to arrive early to get signed up to speak early. For more details email Linda Mitchell, Community Outreach/Stone34 <email@example.com> or call at 206/720-9922.
