Land use issues in the Central Ballard core will be the main topic of discussion at the Central Ballard Residents Association‘s (CBRA) monthly meeting on Thursday evening.
David Goldberg from the Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) will be on hand to talk about the Ballard Urban Design. The Ballard Framework is a process where the DPD is working with Ballard stakeholders and citizens to look at various design issues in the central core of Ballard.
The CBRA will continue their discussion on a business improvement area proposed by the Ballard Partnership for Smart Growth, of which CBRA is a stakeholder.
Formed in February 2012, the CBRA was founded with the aim of providing a public forum for Ballard residents to discuss community issues and to serve as a voice of Central Ballard with the community, government and other organizations. According to their website, the CBRA also advocates on behalf of its members to promote a healthy, livable, walkable, and safe community in the neighborhood’s historic core.
The boundaries of Central Ballard as noted by the CBRA are from Northwest 65th Street between 15th Avenue Northwest and 28th Avenue Northwest, and from Northwest 57th Street between 28th Avenue Northwest and 32nd Avenue Northwest, to Salmon Bay.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in in Conference Room A on the ground floor of Ballard Swedish Hospital (5330 Tallman Ave NW). The CBRA meets the second Thursday of each month, and does not meet in August and December.
