Woodland Park Zoo is hosting an open house for the community to comment on plans to improve access to and visibility of the zoo on Phinney Avenue North. The open house is at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 9, in the Membership Office lobby inside the zoo’s West Entrance. Light refreshments will be served.
Participants will have the chance to meet with zoo staff to learn about improvements the zoo is considering on Phinney Ave. N. near N. 55th Street, including a new, safe pedestrian path, locations for a zoo sign, directional signage for better wayfinding, and repositioning of the nearby North-bound bus stop to help encourage transit use.
Zoo leadership and project managers will incorporate feedback from the open house in the completion of this improvement project. The project is expected to be completed by May 1, 2011.
For more information about the open house, contact Roxanne Murphy, Community Relations and Outreach Liaison, at [email protected] or 206.548.2462.
