[Apologies--our previous publicity said this meeting was on a Wed., but please note it is on a Tuesday.] Your suggestions are welcome and needed for a Green Street concept plan for the segments of Fairview between Fuhrman and Hamlin streets and between Roanoke and Newton. Be sure to attend the public workshop on designing Fairview Green Street – Tues., May 20, 7 p.m. at TOPS-Seward School, 2500 Franklin Ave. E. And see below on how to submit your written or drawn suggestion now. Fairview Avenue E. is one of the best things about our neighborhood–-a quiet, leafy place to walk and enjoy the lake. But Fairview needs improvements allowing pedestrians, bicycles, local traffic, and parking to coexist safely while solving drainage and flooding problems. In response to the Eastlake Neighborhood Plan, the City classified Fairview between Fuhrman and Hamlin streets and between Roanoke and Newton streets as a “neighborhood green street,” but to protect Fairview from unwise changes and qualify for City-funded and developer-funded improvements, the neighborhood needs to work out a Street Design Concept Plan and get SDOT to adopt it. Also we are seeking donated help from a drainage engineer. Based on the comments received, ECC will draft a Street Design Concept Plan for the two segments of the Fairview Green Street, to be submitted for public comment and eventual adoption as a joint director’s rule by the directors of the Department of Planning and Development and the Seattle Department of Transportation. Please help by sending your written or drawn suggestions for Fairview Ave. E. Click here for an outline map of Fairview and other streets that you can mark up and send, or just write us a message: info@eastlakeseattle.org or to ECC, c/o Lake Union Mail, 117 E. Louisa #1, Seattle 98102-3278. Questions are always welcome to those addresses or to (206) 322-5463.
