On Tuesday, September 9th from 7-9 p.m. at Ravenna Eckstein Community Center, the RBCA board will hear a presentation from the 35th Ave Committee Chair, Per Johnson, on the new zoning and streetscape recommendations along 35th from 65th to 95th. The presentation can be viewed here. Residents are welcome to attend, as always.
RBCA’s boundaries go north to 75th, so the presentation on Tuesday September 7th will focus on the 35th Ave nodes of 65th and 75th. Both nodes have proposed upzones and/or height changes to current zoning. There are also supplemental guidelines that aim to make 35th a more pedestrian friendly corridor; added sidewalk width, maximized commercial ceiling height to bring in more restaurants etc., and better corner crossing at nodes, for example.
The population of Seattle is expected to increase by about 100,000 new people
over the next twenty years. In NE Seattle, light rail will make it easier
for people to live in the Ravenna-Bryant area and commute downtown and
connect with other neighborhoods without a car. Our neighborhood schools
continue to attract young families who want to ensure their kids get a good
education and live in safe, walkable neighborhoods. To plan for the likely
increase in people who want to live in the Ravenna-Bryant area and to ensure
that our community remains a safe, pedestrian-friendly, attractive place to
live, neighborhood volunteers have drafted this plan to meet that vision. Please come hear more about it Tuesday September 9th from 7-9 p.m. at Ravenna Eckstein Community Center.
