The Mayor’s Office has transmitted proposed zoning changes and development standards for Lake City to City Council. City Council will hold a public hearing about these proposed zoning changes, along with the Bitter Lake zoning changes, early this summer.
On June 25 DPD will host an open house to present its recommendation for changes in zoning, including permitted height and other development standards, for the South Lake Union Neighborhood. This event marks the culmination in a multi-year planning process that began with designation of the neighborhood as an Urban Center in 2004, the update of the Neighborhood Plan in 2007, completion of the South Lake Union Urban Design Framework in 2010, and release of a Final Environmental Impact Statement earlier this year.
The West Seattle Triangle Planning Project has concluded a year-long planning process covering the area near the junctions of Fauntleroy Way SW, SW Alaska Street, and 35th Avenue SW. Over 35 public meetings were held bringing together residents, property owners, business interests and others interested in the future of this gateway to West Seattle. The culmination of this planning process is expected to result in two key outcomes: 1) proposed zoning changes and amendments to the Land Use Code governing development in the Triangle; and 2) a streetscape concept plan that will guide street improvements in the area.
