Broadview — Bitter Lake — Haller Lake neighborhood planning meeting Tuesday

June 20th, 2011 · Comments

If you live just north of Greenwood in the Broadview-Bitter Lake-Haller Lake neighborhoods, you have a chance to shape and improve your neighborhood through a Neighborhood Plan workshop on Tuesday night.

The workshop is hosted by the City of Seattle and the Neighborhood Advisory Committee, and will help create the Broadview – Bitter Lake – Haller Lake Vision 2020 Neighborhood Plan. The city says several hundred neighbors have already participated in the first round in March by sharing why they chose their neighborhood, what’s important to keep, what’s missing, and what needs attention.

Broadview-Bitter Lake-Haller Lake neighbors cited these five items as the most important to concentrate on:

  • Places where neighbors come together to shop, dine, and play
  • Ways to preserve the neighborhood’s natural beauty and character
  • A more hospitable and pleasant Aurora Avenue North Complement growth with urban amenities and sidewalks
  • Support for community program, events, and organization
  • To walk and bike safely

Neighborhood Advisory Committees (NAC), consisting of community members who are passionate about their community and understand the importance of engaging others in this work, are advising the City on the update.

Tuesday’s meeting begins at 6 p.m. at Broadview-Thomson K-8 School, 13052 Greenwood Ave. N., in the cafeteria. The first 30 minutes is for refreshments and socializing. The presentation and interactive program is scheduled from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
