On Wednesday, January 25, 2017 there will be a public meeting about the Sand Point Way Corridor Study being done by the Seattle Department of Transportation. The meeting will be at 7 PM in the Officers Club of Building 30 at Magnuson Park.
UPDATE: Here is a recap of the information presented at the meeting, as published by The Urbanist Blog: https://www.theurbanist.org/2017/01/26/sand-point-way-safety-proposal-meeting-recap/
Neighbors north of Magnuson Park have been actively advocating for improvements to the pedestrian access at the north end of the park. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has responded and has been meeting with a stakeholder group to consider possible changes to the Sand Point Way NE corridor to improve safety and access for everyone who uses Sand Point Way NE, especially where it runs along Magnuson Park.
They have engaged consultants who have been studying the area, traffic, landscape, etc, and who have presented to the stakeholder groups and considered many suggestions and concerns. Overall the stakeholder group has been very impressed with these preliminary plans and thinks this plan will have many positive benefits. Neighbors are encouraged to come to the meeting in January to learn more about the preliminary plans and to add their own input. See design info at the link below.
