The city of Seattle’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has launched a comprehensive land-use study of the corridor along Elliot Ave W and 15th Ave NW from Interbay to Ballard. The study is meant to “develop a vision for the lands close to this heavily travelled, multi-functional route,” according to DPD.
The study will do the following (from DPD):
- Clarify the desired mix and balance of land uses.
- Assess the potential for development that leverages and supports transit investments.
- Identify opportunities for an improved public realm and placemaking.
DPD has formed two groups to provide input about both Interbay and Ballard, which will meet monthly through the spring. The department says there will be additional public engagement opportunities including briefings for organizations, community meetings, one-on-one interviews and focus groups.
