Electrical Code Update

SDCI is updating the Seattle Electrical Code to reflect the changes to the 2017 National Electrical Code. If you are interested in submitting input to amend the Seattle Electrical Code, please send your submission to seattleelectricalcode2017@seattle.gov. We will accept public input through March 31, 2017.

When you submit your comment, include:

  • The section of the code you want to modify
  • Approximate code language as you would like it to read

We are always seeking industry input into the code-making process. The City of Seattle anticipates adopting the 2017 code in the fall of 2017.

Georgetown Neighborhood Community Meeting

DPD is currently considering amendments to the City’s comprehensive plan that would impact future proposals to make changes to industrial lands in the Manufacturing and Industrial Center (MI/C), which would include areas in Georgetown.

We are holding a community-wide meeting on November 5 at the Seattle Central College-Georgetown Campus (6:00 p.m., Room C122). We’ll have representatives from several City departments that you can talk to. Your comments will help the City evaluate the proposed comprehensive plan amendments related to industrial lands, and how they would affect Georgetown.  Come and share your ideas about areas to preserve, improve, or change in Georgetown.
