What is the U District Urban Design Framework?
For the past year, members of the U District community have worked with DPD to develop a vision for the future of the U District—the recommendations from this process are presented in a draft Urban Design Framework. Community members who helped draft and review the document include residents, business owners, the faith community, social service providers, developers, and the University of Washington. Topics include:
Public space: how can parks, streets, and other public spaces better serve the needs of a growing community?
Land use and height: what kinds of development does the community want to see, and how can the City’s regulations help?
Mobility: with light rail on the way, what are smart ways to support transportation choices to, from, and within the U District?
Between 2013 and 2015, the U District Urban Design Framework will guide decisions relating to land use and design of the neighborhood.
Now is a great time to get involved and tell us about your vision for the U District!
