DPD and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) are releasing final versions of several streetscape concept plans for public comment. The streetscape plans are guides for improvements to streets and sidewalks that can be made over time when new buildings are built, or with city sponsored projects. These streetscape plans were done as part of our planning in neighborhoods throughout the city over the past few years.
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.
