Livable Phinney Wins on Key Issues: Phinney Flats Stopped for Now

In a decision issued July 24, the Hearing Examiner ruled in our favor on almost every important issue.

The building must have greater setbacks, the clerestories on the rooftop are unlawful, and the City will be required to evaluate the actual bus headway data we presented before allowing this project to proceed without any onsite parking. This decision will be a game changer for all Urban Villages dealing with the application of Frequent Transit Service parking exemptions.

We will write more later, but we wanted you to know this terrific news. Click here to download the Hearing Examiner’s decision as a PDF.

Thank you for your support in this long struggle! We couldn’t have gotten this far without you. We will be reviewing the decision closely with our attorney to determine next steps.
