What makes Seattle’s waterfront unique? What tools will Seattle need to create a great central waterfront? How will we keep it active and inviting for generations to come? How can public and private partners set the stage for future success? The viaduct replacement project provides a unique opportunity for the community to reclaim its spectacular central waterfront, with great public spaces and better connections to the city as a whole.
The City of Seattle is holding four community meetings (one in West Seattle, see below) for the public to learn about the exciting work of creating a great central waterfront. The Central Waterfront Partnerships Committee and the Department of Planning and Development will host the meetings to provide information on the work of the committee, which was established by the mayor and council to develop recommendations for creating safe, attractive and inviting new public spaces on the central waterfront.
The committee is in the midst of a several month process, established by Ord.123142, to make recommendations on how to best fund, manage and program a revitalized central waterfront that remains accessible and inviting to all for decades to come.
The West Seattle area meeting will be at High Point Community Center, 6920 34th Ave SW, on March 13 from 2:30 to 4:00 pm. For more information check out the city website http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/planning/central_waterfront/Overview/
