The Housing Affordability and Livability Committee hosted three Community Open Houses during the months of November and December to receive community feedback early in their process. They will continue to collect community input via a survey and community feedback.
Our draft Northgate Urban Design Framework (UDF), developed with extensive community input, is available for your review. After looking at it, please take our survey because your thoughts about it are important to us. They will help us define the most important priorities for improving the area south of Northgate mall to make it more healthy, livable, and aesthetically attractive.
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.
DPD has kicked off a Major Update of the Seattle Comprehensive Plan. This happens but once every seven years. This month we are making a special outreach to you to complete a survey. It can be found on our website, www.seattle.gov/dpd/planning/CompPlan, or on our Seattle 2030 and Beyond Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SEA2030. Please take the survey and please pass it on to your friends and neighbors! Please watch the video about this project – (also visible on our webiste and Facebook page ) – this will provide you with helpful background about the comprehensive plan.
