Two questions –
1. Are you working with Katherine Burke to get safer, better access to ST train station ?

2. It appears all of Union Bay place NE has been refined raising height limits 15feet or more?? True?

Any info on above would be helpful

Prior to the UW Husky Stadium light rail station opening, RBCA advocated for creating better access to the station: http://www.ravennabryant.org/2014/10/we-want-better-connection-to-new-st-husky-stadium/

The RBCA board continues to advocate for better access to transit, including light rail at Husky Stadium. As part of our work in partnership with the Roosevelt Neighborhood Association and NE Seattle Greenways, our #Fix65th advocacy campaign highlights the need for better access to the Roosevelt light rail station when it opens in a few years. During our 12/5 board meeting, we will discuss providing comments to UW regarding their Husky Stadium Transit Master Plan. Anyone interested in advocating for better access to transit in the Ravenna-Bryant neighborhood is encouraged to participate in RBCA board meetings.

As far as proposed zoning changes in Ravenna-Bryant, neighbors can read four earlier posts to this website (posted between November 16 and 26) for an overview. Along Union Bay Place, the City is proposing that the east side of the street be re-zoned from Neighborhood Commercial 2 – 40 feet to Neighborhood Commercial 2 – 55 feet, adding 15 feet in allowable height. The west side of the street is currently zoned Neighborhood Commercial 2 – 65 feet and the City is proposing that it be zoned Neighborhood Commercial 2 – 75 feet, adding 10 feet in allowable height. The west side of the street is part of the University Urban Center.
