Ballard gets first portable restroom

Posted by Geeky Swedes on January 26th, 2008

After getting “a lot of inquiries” about a public restroom, the city of Seattle has placed a portable unit on Market St., right across from Majestic Bay.

Rob Mattson, director of the Ballard Neighborhood Service Center, told the Ballard News Tribune that people have asked businesses in the area to use the restroom, but have been refused. So violá, a public restroom. We took a peek inside, and it was cleaner and less smelly than your average Honey Bucket. The city says it will be cleaned every morning.

Adds Mark below: “This looks terrible. Could they have picked a worse spot? How about the parking lot in front of that Magnum building next to Volterra?”
