A small group of Ballard residents joined Rep. Reuven Carlyle for a conversation over coffee this morning.
Hot topics included public safety, parking, public transportation, the tunnel and the “missing link” of the Burke Gilman trail. “Let’s get this out of the courts,” Reuven said about the lawsuit filed by a group of Ballard businesses over the city’s plan to fill the gap in the trail. He said he suggested to the mayor’s office that everyone sit down and negotiate a settlement. “There has to be a win-win,” he said, explaining the need to connect the trail. “We have to figure this out. It affects us all.”
If you missed this morning’s chat, join Rep. Carlyle at the Farmers Market on August 30th from noon – 2 p.m. We will have more details closer to that date.
