Do you think the area near Seattle’s pro sports stadiums could become a more vibrant, user friendly stadium district? How can we make sure new activity preserves freight movement and industry? How could a new basketball arena and State Route 99 tunnel fit into the neighborhood? These are some of the key questions for the Stadium District Study now underway. (Study area map)
We’ve assembled a stakeholder advisory group that meets monthly until August of 2013 to help work through topics. The study could lead to changes to the city’s comprehensive plan and land use codes to achieve shared goals. We’ll also work on urban design plans to help guide improvements to streets and public spaces.
