Action Alert: Send in a public comment letter to the City to Save The Theodora!

Unless we stop it, Goodman Real Estate will convert the building from low income housing for seniors and folks with disabilities to luxury housing for the wealthy. But we can stop this and preserve some of Seattle’s last public housing. One tool at our disposal is public comment to the city on Goodman’s permit applications. Please take a few minutes to send a personalized comment letter into the Department of Planning and Development and demand our city pay close attention when our affordable housing is at stake.
