The Ballard Chamber March luncheon is set for Wednesday, March 19, from noon – 1:30 p.m. at Leif Erickson Hall (2245 NW 57th St).
This month’s meeting will focus on two important Ballard topics: Urban Design and Transportation. Two guest speakers from the Department of Planning and Development and the Department of Transport will provide an overview of what’s in store for 2014 relative to these critical issues.
David Goldberg, Senior Planner with the Dept. of Planning and Development, will review the Ballard Urban Design Framework (UDF) process that is in happening in 2014. The end result of this effort will be a UDF plan that identifies urban design and transportation recommendations for streetscape design, land use regulations, design guidelines and transportation that will guide future development and improve access, while ensuring Ballard’s people and places can thrive.
Jonathan Williams, Senior Transportation Planner with the Dept. of Transportation, will provide an overview of SDOT’s ongoing parking work in the neighborhood. This includes the Ballard Community Parking Program and working with the Chamber to administer a Ballard Employee Parking Survey. These efforts will provide an opportunity to review the current on-street parking landscape in Ballard’s commercial core as well as identify the parking and transportation patterns and needs of Ballard-area employees.
Cost for the event is $20 for members, $25 for non-members and $30 at the door. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 14. All are welcome to attend.
