The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is getting ready to talk about a second neighborhood greenway in Ballard.
Neighborhood greenways are safer, calmer residential streets for you, your family, neighbors and customers. Neighborhood greenways do not add bike lanes and there are minimal if any on-street parking impacts. Last year one was completed on NW 58th Street. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, please do. This year SDOT is evaluating a north-south route in the area of 17th Avenue NW from Salmon Bay to Soundview Playfield.
An important part of the evaluation is talking to the people who live, work, shop and play in the area. The first public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 25 from 6 to 7:30PM in the Commons Room at Ballard High School. Please mark your calendars and help spread the word.
This is the first of two public meetings. The first meeting shares traffic data and helps SDOT staff understand where people want to walk and bike, and the barriers to doing so. At the second meeting we share the results of technical analysis and public comment and the most promising route.
If you have questions or comments you want to share in advance feel free to contact Dawn Schellenberg, 206-684-5189.
