Green Lake Development Meeting Jan 20

January 8, 2016 6:49am


More development news from the heart of Green Lake. A community meeting to discuss the proposed project on NE 73 St that would replace Rosita’s Mexican Grill parking lot is January 20. The meeting will discuss the proposed 6-story, 45 unit apartment complex that is slated to have parking for 14 vehicles.

Over the past year one of the main concerns with the development is parking in that area which is already congested.
Seattle Department of Planning and Development will be on hand to hear comments and concerns from residents.

Livable Green Lake, a group that was formed to bring greater awareness and scrutiny to new development in the Green Lake community has coordinated the meeting with the DPD. Livable Green Lake’s James Cameron says that one of the main concerns is how the lack of parking will affect businesses in that area. “People should be aware that this project puts some well-known businesses in that community at risk,” he said. “If they do go out of business or move, people will be looking back.”

The agenda for the meeting includes:
Learn about the developer-paid traffic and parking study that Seattle DPD is supposed to review
Listen to nearby business owners talk about the impact on their businesses and futures
Hear the stories of local residents who already struggle to find parking on their own street
The developer may be on hand for the meeting, although according to Livable Green Lake, he has not been at the previous three meetings.
