The Ballard District Council unanimously agreed Wednesday evening to recommend four projects to the city for funding from the 2011 Neighborhood Projects Fund.
The intersection of 20th Ave NW and Leary Ave NW.
The projects, two of which were proposed in 2009 and two which are new in 2010, are listed in priority order:
Earlier this year, the Ballard District Council had the Seattle Department of Transportation do a cost analysis of each project. The one project that was not recommended this year is a sidewalk/walkway at 17th Ave NW from NW 85th to NW 87th. The cost for this project is estimated at $95,000.
Each of the 13 district councils are asking for the city’s help to fund small-scale projects like these and approximately $90,000 will be available to each neighborhood district. The Ballard proposals come in at $100,854, which as Dennis Galvin, the presenter from the four-person committee stated, it’s better to ask for a little more than a little less.
