RESPONSE: DETERMINATION OF NON-SIGNIFICANCE
Read the BNC's response to the City's DNS on Detached Accessory Dwelling Units. We believe DADUs proposed to be built in all city neighborhoods will have an environmental impact and that an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) is warranted.

REPORT:
"Yes, you CAN fight City Hall: Lessons Learned from Seattle" was the theme of our second Public Meeting held Jan. 11 with guest speaker Martin Henry Kaplan, AIA, from Seattle. It was another successful community meeting with 110 attendees and great dialogue. A video is available here.
