On July 25 Seattle City Council adopted legislation to amend the Land Use Code to rezones sites in the Bitter Lake Village Hub Urban Village and to amend development standards. The zoning proposals are based on an inclusive planning process that led to the Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lake Neighborhood Plan update and the Bitter Lake Urban Design Framework that document the community’s development vision for the Bitter Lake Village Center.
Great news: the Rainier Beach and Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lakeneighborhood plan updates are done! Last month we held the final community meetings in the update process. Approximately 40 people attended the Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lake meeting and 110 people attend the Rainier Beach meeting. Deputy Mayor Smith, Councilmember Burgess, DPD Director Diane Sugimura and DON Director Bernie Matsuno attended the meetings and provided opening remarks.
This March, the communities of Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lake and Rainier Beach will start taking action on priorities for their neighborhoods. Two upcoming workshops will give the communities the chance to celebrate the completion of their neighborhood plan updates and begin the implementation of priorities to achieve the respective communities’ goals.
The Neighborhood Planning team is wrapping up the second round of plan updates. The team is drafting final language for the neighborhood plan updates and responding to comments on the proposals shared at open houses this past October and November. The Neighborhood Planning team is working with the Neighborhood Advisory Committees in both Rainier Beach and Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lake.
Come preview proposed Rainer Beach and Broadview/Bitter Lake/Haller Lake Neighborhood Plan Updates.
The City will present the first draft of your Neighborhood Plan Update priorities for your review and input. As a stakeholder, you and others are encouraged to transform your passion about key issues into reality. With your help we can all make your neighborhood a great place.
