The NE 70th St Crossing Improvement design has been updated to remove the parking option between Roosevelt Way NE and 12th Ave NE, to compensate for the narrowness of the street. Parking still will be available on the south side of NE 70th St between Roosevelt Way NE and 8th Ave NE as shown on the previous design. Updates and information about the revisions are available online at Seattle.gov: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/projects-and-programs/programs/neighborhood-street-fund-program/projects/ne-70th-st
For more than fifteen years now we have been hearing about urban villages and planning for more housing in Seattle, with Wedgwood never included in any “zoning maps” for greater density of buildings. Now the Mayor of Seattle and the City Council are proposing to bring the Housing Affordability and Livability plans into practice in the year 2017. This plan could include zoning regulations which would bring benefit to controlling what types of new buildings will come in along Wedgwood’s commercial district of 35th Ave NE.
Lake City’s Future First project has brought a new zoning plan and there will be new developments built.
Wedgwood’s neighbor to the north, Lake City, has an alliance of businesses and community groups and they have launched a new webpage this week.
