The Phinney Ridge Community Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N. The main topic on the agenda is a discussion of the city’s design guidelines for new development.
Development is a hot topic these days as numerous construction projects are underway throughout the neighborhood. Some of the projects will have very limited or no parking spaces provided, which has rankled some neighbors worried that extra cars will take over the already crowded on-street parking.
The topic of the meeting will be the Design Guidelines for Greenwood Phinney as they apply to proposed projects that will have public meetings or ask for written comments. Current proposed development projects are 6726 Greewood Ave N (60 units, no parking) and 6528 Phinney Ave N (10 units, no parking). Understanding the Design Guidelines that were updated by the community as recent as 2013 are important to providing constructive feedback to the Dept of Planning and Development and the developers. A copy of the Guidelines can be found here.
