LURC

Did You Know? You can Attend Meetings of the Central Area Land use review Committee CALURC

The Central Area Land Use Review Committee (LURC) is a volunteer committee of neighborhood residents who are working to give those who live here a voice in decisions that shape our environment.  The LURC meets with developers and designers and advocates on behalf of residents.  Meetings are held at least monthly and more often as needed.  Currently, the LURC is working with community partners including the Historic Central Area Arts and Culture District, the Central Area Collaborative, and others to produce a set of design guidelines that are specific to the Central Area. To learn more, see the Central Area Land Use Review Committee on Facebook at https://www.Facebook.com/CentralAreaLURC/.

Save the Date, April 11th and Attend


Certainly it is the people not the infrastructure that brings vitality to a neighborhood. Nonetheless, the design and type of development will have a profound effect on the character of where we live and work and this will be the focus of our April Quarterly Meeting with presentations by the Central Area Land Use Review Committee, Capitol Hill Housing and more. Why did you invest in the neighborhood? What are your aspirations for the Squire Park Neighborhood? Deciding to live in a neighborhood is an investment. How can you contribute your neighborhood? Squire Park residents and businesses, along with neighboring community councils have worked for decades to establish the Central District as a great place to live and work, while striving to maintain the residential character, the diversity, and history of our neighborhood. We have a great new board, and now more than ever we need ideas and energy from everyone in Squire Park.

The neighborhood-scape of Squire Park is changing and new development often feels chaotic, exciting and challenging. Newer and long-time residents know that some areas in the neighborhood are finally getting the attention they’ve needed and at the same time do not want to lose what brought them to this neighborhood or its familiar landscapes and landmarks. When poorly executed, these man made forms can contribute to feelings of isolation and alienation.  When well designed, neighborhood architectural styles and landscapes contribute to a welcoming, open, and neighborly feeling, while also reflecting a sense of the history and character of the place. The presentations will give an over-arching picture of what is being planned and currently under construction on 12th Avenue, E. Union, 23rd Avenue, S. Jackson and everywhere in between.

An important piece of the discussion will be how we can connect with the information to become effective advocates for our needs and aspirations for the neighborhood. Make this your neighborhood. Plan to attend the Squire Park Community Council Quarterly Meeting. In addition to the main presentation we will have updates on transportation and how you can be involved in restorative justice.
