DPD held an initial public meeting for this study on July 26, and gathered feedback on priorities for future growth and preferred types of improvements near the Northgate Transit Center. The study is exploring how the public environment (streets, sidewalks, parks, bus transfer points) may be arranged in the district near the Transit Center, as well as building forms, preferred mixes of uses, and ways to achieve a truly livable, healthy and attractive place.
Seattle and King County agencies are working together to foster a well-rounded district that serves residents’ needs, has a better sense of place, and is healthy and sustainable. The study is currently in a design phase, which means we are reviewing public input, and identifying priorities and design alternatives. A second public meeting is anticipated in late October to share our findings.
In the meantime, you are encouraged to take our survey to identify your preferences for the future of the area south of Northgate Mall. Visit www.seattle.gov/dpd/Planning/NorthgateStationAreaDevelopment/
