The Green Lake Community Council

September 12, 2014 12:03pm

Jeff Tretheway, developer of the 414 Ravenna building, presenting their plans at the Council meeting.

Wednesday night we attended the Green Lake Community Council (GLCC) meeting, held at the Hearthstone Chapel. We were invited by Council Chair Paul Kostek to introduce the site to the community.

The Community Council is a neighborhood group who’s mission is in part, “To foster a greater sense of community among all who live, work and play here.” It’s a great resource for locals to understand what is planned around the neighborhood in new developments and for discussion of civic issues. The GLCC meets at 7:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of odd numbered months in The Hearthstone Chapel, main floor, 6720 E. Green Lake Way N Seattle.

Items on the agenda for the September 10th meeting included:

  • An update on the proposed plans for a new apartment development at 414 Ravenna
  • Bethany Community Church’s plans for a replacement building on their lot, as well as parking strategies they have implemented for their church attendees
  • An update on the parking situation in North East Green Lake, and the proposed Residential Parking Zone (permits) presented by Ruth Harper of SDOT
  • And Sarah and I introducing the site.

Thanks for the questions and welcome from attendees!
